Kingfisher halts flights for another week

India's Kingfisher airline has grounded its fleet for a further week after talks with workers protesting against months of unpaid wages failed.

On Monday the cash-strapped airline had to suspend flights for three days after some technical staff went on strike.

But late on Thursday it said flights would be grounded until 12 October, after pilots joined the protest.
