      Strike halts New York transport

      Millions of New Yorkers are without subway and bus services after city transport workers voted to strike. The 34,000 members of the Transport Workers Union walked out after talks over their contracts collapsed.

      Highlight: One commuter, Joy Bennett, said the strike had enabled her to travel to work above ground for the first time. "This is beautiful," she said, walking through Times Square before dawn.
