Fiji police release nurses arrested over protest

Radio New Zealand International, August 7, 2007 About 20 Fiji nurses
who were arrested when they staged a protest outside the cabinet office

arrived in pairs holding up placards drawing attention to their strike
which is now in its fifteenth day. The general secretary of the Fiji

Mrs Lutua says police treated them professionally and provided them
with lunch. ... Fiji
