Greece bailout: Tension in Athens over unpaid workers
Protesters have appeared in court in the Greek capital Athens a day after a rally by shipyard workers against job cuts descended into violence.

A line of blue police lorries flanked the courthouse as riot police kept back supporters of those detained during the clashes on Thursday.

Police had used truncheons when at least 100 protesters broke into the courtyard of the defence ministry.

Greece may run out of money next month, its prime minister has warned.

Antonis Samaras told the German daily Handelsblatt that his country could only survive until the end of November without the next planned tranche of bailout loans.

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel will visit Athens on Tuesday for talks with Mr Samaras on the bailout - her first visit there since the debt crisis erupted.

The protest wasnt over job cuts but unpaid wages. Months without being paid.



Workers from the Skaramanga Shipyards, which deals mainly with military contacts, say they have not been paid in months.
