Czech train services disrupted by German strike


Train services between Prague and Berlin and Hamburg were disrupted Wednesday by a strike by German train drivers. Trains from the Czech capital were forced to stop at Dresden where an emergency service took over. The strike over wages and conditions with national carrier Deutsche Bahn (DB) is due to last until Friday. Two thirds of long distance and regional DB passenger services were due to be affected. Services by other operators from the Czech Republic to Munich and across the border from Cheb were not expected to be hit.
