Greek labour unions plan more strikes

Unions threaten further strikes a day after a man dies in clashes and the government's approval of more cutbacks.

    More strikes are being threatened in Greece, just a day after stringent cutbacks were approved by the country's parliament.

    Riots on Thursday left one man dead and hundreds of others injured after protesters attacked stewards from the communist-led PAME labour union.

    But, unions say they are prepared for further walkouts. They have rejected the latest austerity law, which their government says the country needs in order for it to secure international bailouts.
