    Municipality police are striking in Athens amid fears of job losses.

    They are concerned that government talks with the troika over reforming Greece's public sector will leave them out of work.

    A decision is to be made on the fate of 3,500 workers, who could either be redeployed or laid off.

    The Greek government have been set a Monday deadline to finalise and submit their proposals.
