BEIRUT - Air traffic controllers at Beirut airport plan a four-hour strike on Thursday as part of public sector action to pressure the government to refer a new wage scale to parliament.

The strike will affect flights in and out of Beirut's Rafik Hariri airport between 10 am and 2 pm, they said in a statement issued late on Monday.

Teachers and other public workers launched a series of strikes last month to push Prime Minister Najib Mikati's government to approve higher pay for public sector workers.
