Fiji Sun - - Aust/nz/Pacific News - RNZ

Noumea: One of the main bus com­pa­nies in New Cale­do­nia has sus­pended its ser­vices un­til Mon­day in protest at vi­o­lence against its driv­ers.

The driv­ers of Car­sud have de­cided not to work un­til Mon­day morn­ing af­ter one of them was punched in the face by a pas­sen­ger in sub­ur­ban Noumea. An on-bus cam­era iden­ti­fied the man who at­tacked the driver af­ter he was told to turn down his mu­sic.

The suspect has been de­tained. Last month, a 34-year-old man was given a jail sen­tence for threat­en­ing a bus driver of the same com­pany with a ri­fle.
