Greek inmates on hunger strike over prison 'hell'
Issued on: Modified:
In Greece, scores of inmates at the country's only prison hospital are on hunger strike. They're also refusing medication, in protest at poor sanitary conditions and severe over-crowding. Designed to care for 60 people, the Korydallos prison hospital, near Athens, currently houses more than 200 inmates. Is this because of the country's financial woes? Our team in Greece went to find out more, and asked the authorities what they plan to do to improve matters.
