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

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.

The government has condemned the strike as illegal and Kenyan air force personnel have been brought in to ease the situation.

Riot police were deployed and used tear gas and batons to disperse striking workers at the capital’s main airport, local media say.
