Argentina police confront lorry driver strike over pay

The Argentine government has sent in security forces to clear access to fuel refineries blocked by striking lorry drivers demanding pay rises.

The drivers have been blocking access to the country's main refineries after defying a government order for talks over a 30% pay increase.

President Cristina Fernandez returned home early from a UN conference in Brazil to deal with the matter.

The drivers flouted compulsory conciliation, reports say.
