Greek public transport goes on strike

Greek public transport workers have taken part in a nationwide 24-hour strike in protest against the government's plans to cut public sector jobs and wages.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Metro, bus and tram services were halted as a result of the Tuesday walkout, leading to heavy traffic jams.

The strike follows the approval of the country's unpopular austerity measures by its government days ago.

Greece is struggling to reduce a huge government deficit amid fears of a possible default that may set off a eurozone crisis.
