    Background: MORE TROUBLE IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, WHERE POLICE IN SANTO DOMINGO USED TEAR GAS ON THURSDAY AFTER A GROUP OF YOUTHS THREW ROCKS AT POLICE CARS. THE VIOLENCE AROSE OUT OF A STRIKE THAT HAS PARALYSED THE CITY'S TRANSPORT SINCE MONDAY.

    TAXI AND BUS DRIVERS CAME OUT, SEEKING FARE INCREASES AND CHANGES IN THE TRANSPORT LAWS. AFTER THE GOVERNMENT HAD ACCEDE TO MANY OF THEIR DEMANDS, POLICE BROKE UP A CROWD OF TAXI DRIVERS OUTSIDE THEIR UNION HEADQUARTERS AND INJURED TWO. ON THAT ACCOUNT, THE FIVE THOUSAND DRIVERS CONTINUED THE STRIKE.

    ON WEDNESDAY, THE POLICE SEIZED A DOZEN TAXIS AND ON THURSDAY PUT PLAINCLOTHES POLICEMEN IN THE DRIVER'S SEATS IN AN EFFORT TO EASE THE TRANSPORT SHORTAGE. POLICE ON HORSEBACK AND IN PATROL CARS PATROLLED THE CITY, AS THE POLICE-OPERATED TAXIS SET OUT. THE TAXIS GOT FEW RIDERS, AND SOME OF THEM WERE STONED. IN THE AFTERNOON, SOME YOUTHS THREW STONES AT ONE OF THE PATROL CARS; THE POLICE RESPONDED WITH TEAR GAS. THEY QUICKLY EMPTIED THE AREA AND ARRESTED ONE OR TWO YOUTHS.
