    A week of planned strikes in Greece kicked off on Monday with the teachers' unions, which have reported a near 90 percent turnout of their members who are angry at public spending cuts.

    Civil servants are to go on strike for 48 hours from Wednesday. Around 12,500 of them are due to be suspended in a bid to save money.
