Athens hit by Greek transport strike after police raid

Traffic gridlock has paralysed Athens as Greek commuters struggle to work by car, amid a public transport strike.

Early on Friday police stormed a metro train depot, breaking up a workers' sit-in.

Metro workers later ended their strike after the government threatened them with arrest unless they returned to work

The row is over a planned pay cut, as Claire Brennan reports.
