Health and Healthcare

A passenger sleeps on a bench at the Fiumicino International airport in Rome November 11, 2008. Dozens of Alitalia flights were cancelled for a second day on Tuesday after protests by airline staff opposed to a takeover by a business consortium had forced the cancellation of about 100 flights on Monday, with the government threatening tough action against the strikers.
