Athens Sees Protests as Debt Inspectors Return

Ad Feedback

More strikes and demonstrations were held in Athens, Greece, Tuesday, as debt inspectors returned to see if the country's financial reforms were strong enough for another bailout.

Greece has imposed tax increases and pay cuts to try to get its budget under control and avoid a default on its debts.

Some 10,000 protesters rallied against more cutbacks, saying they've already been hit hard by the government's austerity measures.

But international debt inspectors from the European Union, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund are pushing the Greek government for faster cost-cutting reforms.

Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank's president, has warned that the eurozone's debt crisis has gotten worse and that it's now, "very grave."
