Moskvich Plant Stalls

MOSCOW () -- The AZLK automobile factory, which turns out Moskvich cars, has halted production for a week "due to economic difficulties," Interfax reported Wednesday.

The Moscow plant, which has shut down briefly several times over the past year, does not have enough money to buy sufficient parts, the agency reported. The plant's staff is on forced leave and will be paid two-thirds of their wages.
