Construction has reportedly resumed at the Finnish paper products company Metsa-Botnia's Fray Bentos mill site in Uruguay after a week-long strike.

"The strike is over at least for the time being and construction has resumed," according to a Metsa-Botnia spokeswoman.

The mill being built on the bank of the Uruguay River has met with opposition in Argentina, and Argentina has referred Uruguay to the International Court of Justice, reported the Finnish news agency STT.
