Brussels airport strike off

The Belgian government says that a strike by firefighters that closed Brussels international airport has been called off.

A government spokesman said negotiations had taken place between management and unions and the airport would be fully operational again by the early evening -- nine hours after it was shut down forcing flights to be cancelled and diverted.

The firefighters called the twenty-four hour strike in support of demands for improved working conditions.
