Greek jobs crisis hurts child health

Doctors say they are seeing more sick children every week as jobless Greeks struggle to pay for healthcare.

    The Greek prime minister has called a snap election for May as deep government cuts, aimed at reducing the deficit, are hitting the public hard.

    The unemployment rate is at 21 per cent and is expected to rise as many people find it hard to find a job.

    Al Jazeera's Tim Friend reports from the town of Perama where the jobless rate is soaring to record levels.
