Britain's National Coal Board met with government arbitrators, but the meeting ended with no new developments in the 47-week-old miners' strike. The state board said that only 11 of its 174 mines are still completely strikebound, with 664 more miners returning to work for the first time. The board said that more than 80,000 miners are back at work, leaving about 100,000 still on strike. The strike began last March over the board's plan to close 20 mines and cut 20,000 jobs.
