Santo Domingo.- Bus drivers of the national bus owners association (Fenatrano) staged a walkout Tuesday morning, stranding dozens of commuters on the busy thoroughfare 27 de Febero Av. in the Herrera sector.
Some union members even dismounted the passengers from some of the buses.
The protest against rising fuel prices prompted National Police officers to converge on the scene where they fired tear gas canisters to break up the crowd.
