  • [01] Schaeuble sees 'agreement in principle' at Tuesday Eurogroup

    German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble expressed hope for an agreement in principle on Greece, in a doorstep statement as he arrived for a Eurogroup meeting in Brussels on Tuesday.

    "The review is almost concluded," Schaeuble said, while he again insisted that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) must participate in the Greek programme, including by contributing financing.

    [02] 1,528 refugees and migrants evacuated from Idomeni so far

    Authorities have evacuated 1,528 people from the makeshift camp of Idomeni since Tuesday morning and transferred them to seven different accommodation centers, as part of a police operation to empty the camp, police said.

    The refugees and migrants have been resettled in rented venues in the region, such as a former tannery in Sindos, a warehouse that previously housed a logistics company and the Alexiadis estate in Derveni. Other refugees have been taken to accommodation centers in Vagiohori, Oreokastro, Petra in Olympos and Nea Kavala.

    [03] Athens buses, metro announce work stoppages on Thursday

    The Athens public transport system will once again grind to a halt for several hours after 11:00 in the morning on Thursday, when the capital's bus, metro and tram workers will strike in order to attend union meetings. Athens' trams and lines 1, 2 and 3 on the Athens metro system will not be running from 11:00 until 16:00 in the afternoon, while buses and trolleys will not be running between 11:00 and 17:00.

    Public transport workers object to the inclusion of the public transport companies in the new privatisation fund, oppose the prospect of privatisation and have called the meetings to decide their response. The metro workers' union has not ruled out repeated rolling strikes, combined with actions to inform the public about the consequences of privatisation.
