Workers vote to end 11-day trash strike in Spain

Trash collectors in Seville have voted to end a strike that lasted 11 days and left the sidewalks of the popular tourist destination reeking with piles of garbage. Street cleaners accepted a deal negotiated by their union with the cleaning company Thursday.

 

City authorities estimate there are some 7,000 tons of rubbish-filled bags lying around the ancient city. A minimum level of services required by law has meant some 20 percent of the city's trash has been collected since the strike began. (AP)
