Three people have been shot dead during a nationwide strike in Nigeria against the government's decision to scrap fuel subsidies.
The price of a litre of fuel has more than doubled from 31 to 66 euro cents after regulators made the move on January 1.
Protesters say they will continue striking until the old price is restored.
Two demonstrators were killed and thirty injured during a rally in the northern city of Kano, whilst one person was shot dead by police officers in the economic capital, Lagos.
