Millions of children went back to school today in Guinea for their first classes in more than three months after teachers ended strike action, reports AFP news agency.

The teachers’ union agreed a deal with the government four days ago over pay and work conditions, AFP adds.

The strike began at the start of October after the teachers union SLECG accused the government of reneging on the terms of a previous deal, guaranteeing a pay hike.

The wage deal with the government should guarantee teachers a 40% pay rise, says AFP.
