Athens lawyers to strike until the weekend

Lawyers in Athens will be on strike from Wednesday until the end of the week in protest at a bill introducing changes to civil procedural law.

The government is due to submit the draft law to Parliament on Wednesday.

The Athens Bar Association is due to give a news conference to explain its objection.

Lawyers said they are angry that the coalition did not take their objections into consideration.
