1:30 pm on 6 August 2013

A strike at the port of Papeete in French Polynesia has stopped containers from leaving the area.

Local radio says a vessel has arrived but no goods have been cleared by the stevedoring company or the port police in charge of customs.

Reports say the strike of the stevedores won't end before the head of the port and the port police have settled their differences.
