Consumers Protest Fuel Price Hike in India For Second Day
The AP reports: Angry consumers blocked rail tracks and roads and shut down businesses in several parts of India for a second day Friday, protesting a hike in fuel prices by the government. Police detained 20 activists of the right-wing opposition Shiv Sena after they disrupted train services in a suburb of Mumbai. The government hiked gasoline prices by 5 rupees ($.13) a liter and diesel prices 3 rupees ($.08) a liter on Wednesday to partially offset soaring international oil prices.
