Lebanon petrol stations suspend strike -NNA

CAIRO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Lebanon’s petrol stations syndicate chief announced on Friday night that the union will suspend its strike starting tonight, state news agency (NNA) quoted Sami al-Brax as saying.

Lebanese daily Al-Nahar cited al-Brax saying the union was suspending its strike to hold talks with authorities and added the syndicate would have a meeting on Monday.

The union had called for an open-ended strike starting Thursday because of losses incurred from having to buy dollars on a parallel market, the main source of hard currency during the country’s economic crisis. (Reporting by Hesham Abdul Khalek and Ellen Francis Editing by Chris Reese)
