Unrest in Greece has escalated with three deaths overnight. Protestors in the streets have been involved in running battles with police. The three people died trying to escape a fire bombing of a bank in the central business district of Athens. A general strike over austerity measures is currently underway centred on massive cuts to the pay of public sector workers.
