Solomon Is teachers begin nationwide strike

Updated 28 January 2013, 9:41 AEDT

Solomon Islands teachers are beginning a nationwide strike today after efforts to resolve a pay dispute with the government were unsuccessful.

School holidays were extended for an extra week last week to give both sides time to reach a compromise, but an agreement has yet to be finalised.
