Civil servants in Chad began a nationwide strike on Monday to press for the restoration of their salaries which were cut four years ago, as well as the payment of various allowances.

The decision to go on strike was taken in the capital, N’Djamena, during a meeting that brought together the four largest trade unions in the country.

It follows the breakdown in negotiations with the government.

Trade union spokesperson Michel Bakar told the BBC that the strike will run for three days, with members providing minimum services in hospitals.

He said workers will stay at home, but could eventually take to the streets if their grievances are not addressed.

Mr Bakar accused the government of failing to live up to its promises.
