British strike curtails hospital admissions

Striking health workers forced more than half of Britain's hospitals to admit only emergency cases at the start of a five-day walkout aimed at doubling a government pay raise offer, union leaders said.

Britain's High Court barred some 30,000 newspaper workers from staging a 24 -hour walkout in support of the strikers, who are primarily auxiliary health workers, including cooks, porters, launderers, and some nurses.
