A woman looks aghast at pieces of rotting meat dumped among a pile of rubbish on a pedestrian street near the central Athens meat market over the weekend. Municipal authorities have asked Athenians not to leave their garbage out for collection today, the third day of a strike by rubbish collectors and dustmen, who want a 7,000-drachma monthly salary increase and an extra bonus.

Mr Laliotis should know that he cannot use rogue nuclear bombs like those dropped by Mr Gryllakis, she said. Mitsotakis is her father. Gryllakis, whose autobiography will be published soon, served as his security advisor from 1985 to 1993.
