Miners End Strike in Northern Bangladesh


More than 1,100 coal miners in northern Bangladesh have ended their four-day strike, after company officials agreed to their pay demands.

Workers at Bangladesh's state-run Barapukuria Coal Mine returned to work on Saturday.

Officials say the company has agreed to raise miners' wages by 22 percent.

On Thursday, striking miners locked at least 700 staff members, including some 200 Chinese workers, inside the coal mining compound.

The miners went on strike Tuesday, following an impasse in talks between their union and a Chinese contracting company.
