NAIROBI, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Kenyan teachers have called off a strike for higher pay that started on Sept. 3 after signing a deal with the government, their union said on Monday.

Under the terms of the deal, public school teachers will get a pay rise of 5,250 shillings for the lowest paid, taking their pay to 19,000 shillings ($220) a month. The highest paid will get 142,000 shillings a month, a rise of 22,000 shillings.

Unions had demanded between 100 and 300 percent pay rises.
