Nigeria braced for more strikes against rising fuel prices

Tens of thousands of people across Nigeria are expected to take part in a second day of strikes against rising fuel prices, triggered by the removal of a government subsidy.

There was widespread disruption on Monday, with shops, offices and schools remaining closed.

At least two people were reported killed in clashes between demonstrators and police.
