Fifth Hunger Striker Hospitalized In Krasnoyarsk

The flight attendants launched their hunger strike months after demonstrations, like this one in March, failed to move Krasair management.
KRASNOYARSK -- One more hunger striker in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk has been hospitalized, the fifth in a group of 17 flight attendants who launched a fast in mid-May over back pay, RFE/RL's Russian Service reports.

The KrasAir Company attendants are demanding what they say are unpaid salaries from the last eight months.

The 12 others continue their hunger strike, which is now more than a week old.

KrasAir had to halt nearly all flights less than a year ago due to financial problems.
