THEY'RE BACK: Journalists from axed Greek state broadcaster ERT returned to the airwaves Thursday amid an escalating crisis that saw the country rocked by a general strike and widening divisions in the coalition government.
HOW THEY DID IT: Officials at the Geneva-based European Broadcasting Union on Thursday said they had successfully relayed a live pirate broadcast from the sacked journalists to Greece, Europe, Asia and Oceania.
WHAT NEXT: The country's conservative-led government shut down state TV and radio Tuesday as part of its austerity measures. Greece is under pressure to fire civil servants as part of its commitments to bailout lenders.
