Nigeria court orders halt to planned strike

Nigeria's National Industrial Court has ordered unions not to hold a planned nationwide strike over spiraling gasoline prices.
An order issued late Friday by Justice Babatunde Adejuwon orders labor groups to stop the planned Monday strike.
The order allows authorities and security agencies to break up a strike if it happens.
Unions ordered a strike because the cost of fuel more than doubled in Africa's most populous nation after the government announced Sunday that they would end subsidies for gasoline.
