|Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced that he will seek a court order to end the first teachers' strike in the city in 25 years, which escalated on Sunday when the teachers' union decided to extend their walk-out. The strike has cancelled classes for 350,000 kindergarten, elementary and high school students in the United States' third-largest school district and will enter its sixth day on Monday. The mayor called the strike "illegal" on Sunday and said he would go to court to seek an injunction to block it.|
