Customs strike delays flights at Sri Lanka’s airport

Sri Lanka’s national airline carrier, Sri Lankan Airlines, said its flights to London, Beijing, Singapore and Lahore were delayed, Xinhua report.
The delays occurred because customs officials went on a wild cat strike to protest their bags being subjected to checks upon their arrival at the Bandaranaike International Airport.
The strike, however, was called off by Wednesday afternoon and officials said flights will operate as scheduled.
