Protesters rail against property foreclosures


Protesters take part in a demonstration against property foreclosures outside a court in Athens on Wednesday. The placards read "No to the crime of foreclosures." Property auctions at Greek courts were suspended again Wednesday – until the end of the month – following a decision by notaries who claim to have come under attack from anti-austerity protesters for simply doing their job. Among the provisions in the multi-bill to be voted on in Parliament on Monday is a measure facilitating electronic property auctions. [Alkis Konstantinidis/Reuters]
