Italy Hit by Rail Strike

Associated Press

Italy's train traffic came to a halt Monday as rail workers struck nationwide to protest a government plan to reorganize the state-controlled railways. The plan includes massive layoffs.

The 24-hour strike, which began at 9 p.m. Sunday, stopped all trains, and alternative bus service gave little relief to the stranded passengers.
