Athens Metro Strike Ends

A 10-day strike by metro workers in the Greek capital, Athens, has ended after the government threatened them with arrest unless they returned to work.

Although a protest by some public transport workers continued, the metro reopened at around 15:00 (13:00 GMT).

Police earlier stormed a metro depot in the city, breaking up a workers' sit-in. Traffic was gridlocked as commuters struggled to work by car.
