Police arrest Costa Rican port strikers

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Costa Rican police arrested 68 people in the country's main Atlantic port on Wednesday after a strike over plans to expand the hub threatened to paralyze shipping.

Workers at Puerto Limón's Moín and Limón terminals, which handle about 80 percent of Costa Rica's foreign trade, went on strike to protest a $1 billion expansion concession granted to APM Terminals, a unit of A.P. Moller-Maersk.
