Cars are caught in a traffic jam during a strike by metro workers in Athens, late Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013. Greece’s conservative prime minister is holding emergency meeting after a deadline for striking public transport workers expired, leaving Athens’ subway system closed for an eighth day. Strikers protesting pay cuts refused to return to work Thursday despite a court decision declaring their protest illegal.
