    Argentine public service unions strike to protest IMF deal halts the country

    Banks and schools remained shut and Buenos Aires slowly emptied of traffic as the day progressed.

    Argentina ground to a halt on Monday as public service unions blocked road, rail and air transport with a nationwide 24-hour strike in protest at the government's latest deal with the International Monetary Fund. In a massive show of force against the conservative government of President Mauricio Macri, organizers said at least one million workers were taking part in the industrial action which halted trains, subways, buses and flights in Latin America's third-largest economy.
