Athens bus drivers walk off the job until 5 p.m.

Bus drivers in the Greek capital called a work stoppage at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, causing problems with public transportation all over Attica as they meet for a general assembly, the state-run Athens-Macedonian News Agency reported.

It was not clear why the work stoppage was called, though the AMNA reported that service would resume starting at 5 p.m.
