BERLIN, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Germany's long-distance rail traffic came to a halt on Monday morning, state-owned rail operator Deutsche Bahn said, as workers staged a four-hour nationwide strike to raise pressure in a pay dispute.

"Currently long distance traffic is suspended," Deutsche Bahn said on its website.

The strike, which was organised by railway union EVG, started at 0400 GMT.
