Chilean truckers end week-long strike on promise of beefed up security

Chilean truckers said they would end a seven-day strike that has damaged supply chains and raised fears for food and commodities exports, following a deal with government. Jose Villagran, vice president of the National Confederation of the Chilean Cargo Transport (CNTC), said the government had pledged to beef up protection for arson attack victims in Chile’s Araucania province, with agreements on “police intelligence” and other unspecified measures.
