BRASILIA - Brazil's central bank said on Wednesday it has halted the release of its reports due to a workers' strike which started a day earlier.

The move will not affect the release of the monetary policy committee's decision on interest rates due later on Wednesday, the central bank's press office said, adding that the meeting minutes will be published next Tuesday.
