Greek debt problems damage tourism

Greece's highly publicised social unrest is affecting its vital tourism industry.

    Greece is a popular summer destination for tourists.

    But the country's highly publicised debt problems and violent demonstrations against government spending cuts have made many potential visitors rethink travel plans to the Mediterranean nation.

    And now Greek workers have walked out in protest at state plans to cut compensation for workers who've been fired.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports on how tourism is vital to the Greek economy.
