Nigeria oil workers threaten strike

Workers threaten to stage national strike to protest delays in salary payments.

    Oil workers in Nigeria are threatening a nationwide strike over pay.

    Their employers say the government owes them over $2.5bn for bringing petrol into the country, and they say they will not pay salaries until that bill has been settled.

    But the Nigerian authorities say some of the claims by these oil companies are fraudulent.
