23. DOCTORS AT GREEK HOSPITALS JOIN STRIKES

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Greek hospital doctors have embarked on a three-day strike, joining high school teachers who walked off the job a day earlier in a week of public sector strikes protesting planned job cuts.

The doctors walked off the job Tuesday, ahead of a two-day civil service strike that is expected to affect public services across the country, including schools, hospitals and some transport systems.

Under government plans, 25,000 public sector employees are to be suspended this year and 15,000 must be fired in the next 15 months as part of efforts to trim the bloated public sector and meet the conditions of Greece's international bailout. The country has been depending on rescue loans from the International Monetary Fund and other European countries that use the euro currency since May 2010.
