Brazil: President orders army to clear roads amid truckers strike

The truck drivers’ strike, driven by higher fuel prices, is causing shortages of food and petrol in some areas.

Brazil‘s president has ordered the military to intervene in a nationwide truck drivers’ strike.

The government and the truck drivers union reached an agreement to suspend the walk-out on Thursday.

But not all drivers are respecting the new deal.
