Trinidad hunger striker back outside PM's office

An increasingly frail activist in Trinidad who has been on hunger strike for nearly two weeks has returned to the prime minister's office to protest a highway expansion project in the Caribbean country.
Police kept activist Wayne Kublasingh and a small group of fellow protesters away from the sidewalk outside the office of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. The protesters stayed in the street much of Monday until Kublasingh was taken back home in an ambulance hired by his family. Kublasingh was treated Friday with IV fluids. A university lecturer who has long been an environmental activist in Trinidad and Tobago, he is protesting a highway expansion that will destroy several hundred homes and wetlands.
Persad-Bissessar says the expansion is needed for the country's development.
