Dominican doctors prolong strike for wage hike
(AP) — SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic - Thousands of doctors and nurses in the Dominican Republic say they will extend their strike for another week. Government officials announced Friday that specially trained soldiers will assist patients during the strike.

Dominican Medical Association spokesman Ariel Suero says the three-day-old strike will continue until the government meets their demands. Suero says more than 15,000 doctors are demanding they be paid $1,700 a month. That's double the salary of some of the workers.
