The raid on the centre, which strikers protesting austerity measures had occupied took place overnight. The government had ordered a civil mobilisation the day before to force the Athens metro staff to halt their strike, which has disrupted traffic in the Greek capital for over a week. Unions reacted by calling a general transport standstill today. AFP PHOTO / LOUISA GOULIAMAKI (Photo credit should read LOUISA GOULIAMAKI/AFP/Getty Images)
