MOSCOW - About 150 miners from the northern Russian cities of Vorkuta and Inta (in pic), who arrived in Moscow on Thursday, began picketing the Government's building in the centre of town. They call for nationalisation of the coal industry and implementation of the commitments the government had assumed in May. The central prefecture authorities have allowed the protest but they have banned pitching camps. Economy Minister Yakov Urinson is expected to meet the protesters later in the day. 16.19 16.21
