Nigerian security forces fired tear gas and shot into the air Monday to disperse around 300 protesters in Lagos as authorities moved to prevent demonstrations in various parts of the country. Nigerian unions announced on Jan. 16 they were suspending a week-old nationwide strike over fuel prices which has shut down Africa's most populous nation and brought tens of thousands out in protest.
