Thousands of passengers have been stranded in Kenya’s four main airports after a strike by workers caused major disruption to flights today.

Workers say they are unhappy over a planned merger between the airport authority and the national airline.

About 60 flights failed to leave Jomo Kenyatta International Airport – East Africa’s largest – but some operations had resumed by the afternoon.

Airports in Mombasa, Eldoret and Kisumu are also disrupted.
