Bank of Cyprus workers protest outside central bank

There have been protests outside the Cypriot central bank by Bank of Cyprus workers who are worried about the future of their jobs.

One protester told the BBC's Tim Willcox that the actions of the head of the Cypriot bank, Panicos Demetriades, were "causing the closing of the Bank of Cyprus".

Mr Demetriades has said that "superhuman" efforts are being made to open the country's banks on Thursday.

Banks in the country have been shut for more than a week as a controversial bailout was negotiated, which will see depositors take losses.
