Greek bank workers strike over deaths of colleagues
"Greek bank workers walked out on strike today in protest at the deaths of three colleagues who were trapped in a bank torched by protesters during massive demonstrations against the government's new harsh austerity measures.
"Yesterday's deaths - the first such fatalities in protests in nearly 20 years in Greece - shocked the public in a country where violence during demonstrations is frequent but rarely results in casualties.
""I have difficulty in finding the words to express my distress and outrage," President Karolos Papoulias said. "Our country came to the brink of the abyss. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that we don't step over the edge.""
