QUITO (Reuters) - Ecuadorean transport unions agreed on Friday to suspend protests against President Lenin Moreno’s scrapping of fuel-subsidies, a union spokesman said, after two days of unrest that halted transport nation-wide and resulted in almost 370 arrests.
“At this time, we announce an end to the halt of services,” said Abel Gomez, a leader of a group representing 11 transport unions.
Indigenous groups and other social movements said earlier they would continue protesting.
