OLYMPIC UPDATE: The AP also reported more than 2,000 construction workers "were off the job Friday in the second day of a strike that has slowed work at the Olympic Park," the main cluster of venues for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.

In a statement, Rio Mais said that "it expected any lost time to be made up quickly and said the construction timetable would not be affected" (AP, 4/4).
