Strikes over Greek state TV shutdown


Trade unions in Greece have begun a 24-hour strike in protest at the closure of the country's state broadcaster.

ERT was shut down on Tuesday with just a few hours' warning. The government says that it was a haven of waste and lacked transparency.

The move has sparked protests among its employees and led to tensions in the coalition government.
