Lebanon petrol stations announce nationwide strike Thursday -NNA

BEIRUT, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Lebanon’s petrol stations union called for an open-ended strike to begin nationwide on Thursday, state news agency NNA reported on Wednesday, quoting a statement from the group.

The union said it was striking as a result of losses incurred from the increasingly expensive black market for dollars, on which it relies to import fuel.
