Athens cabbies in Acropolis protest

Athens is into a seventh day of a stoppage by cabbies angered by government deregulation plans. They fear a taxi license to any applicant will result in a sharp price slump.

In the latest twist, they briefly occupied ticket offices at the Acropolis, allowing visitors to walk in free.

Admission to the ancient fortress would normally set you back 12 euros.
