Libya's teachers on strike over worsening economy
« on: November 07, 2013, 02:08:30 PM »

TRIPOLI: A Libyan official says a three-day teachers' strike to protest worsening economy and demand a pay increase has shut down 95 per cent of the schools in the capital, Tripoli, and elsewhere in the country.

The education ministry official says the strike is expected to end on Thursday. He provided no details on whether the teachers' demands had been met. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to media.
