A crippling transport strike in Nepal continued for second day on Monday, stalling the movement of cargo and people across this Himalayan nation.

The Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs, who organised the strike, was refusing to rescind the call for a strike, saying the government needed to fulfill their demands.

The federation said it was seeking compensation for drivers who had their vehicles damaged during protests and riots in the country over the past few months.

Dinesh Bhandari of the federation said his group was seeking security assurances from the government.

The strike has left thousands of travelers stranded and also halted the transport of food, fuel and other supplies on trucks.
