1:30 pm on 27 May 2008

A strike has hit the school bus system on the French Polynesian island of Moorea.

The local company, Moorea Nui, has decided to withdraw its service because it says it has received no payment from the local education ministry this year so far.

Today's action has affected 2,000 students.
