Tensions are rising in Athens as public-sector workers walked out on a 48-hour strike, leaving hospitals and schools with very few staff , just as inspectors from Greece's international creditors arrived to assess the state of country's economy.
The presence of the unpopular "troika" of inspectors -- from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Greece's fellow euro countries and the European Central Bank (ECB) -- is fueling public anger.

Since 2010 Greece has been relying on two €240 billion loans. However, these bailouts have come with strict conditions and the Greek government has had to impose tough austerity measures on the people, including widespread government spending cuts and tax hikes.
However, the money lent so far is not been enough and the latest review by the troika will determine how well the country has stuck to the terms of its loans and whether the country will need further funds, Reuters said on Tuesday. The visit is expected to last until the end of next month.
The latest strike by public worker unions, which began at midnight on Monday night, has been called in protest against more planned job losses as part of the new bailout deal. The strike is set to coincide with a four-hour full general strike of private-sector workers as well on Tuesday.
The strikes come at a time of rising social tension in the country, not solely as a result of economic hardship. An anti-fascist rally has been called to take place on Wednesday at a time of increasing public anger following the death last week of an anti-racism rapper by a self-proclaimed supporter of the far-right Golden Dawn party.

Though the party denies any involvement in the rapper's death, a number of police chiefs resigned on Monday citing "personal reasons" and a number were suspended over alleged links to the right wing party.

Though support for Golden Dawn has tumbled since the death of Pavlos Fissas, the party has found more support for its anti-euro zone stance since Greece received its first bailout in 2010.
Though the country's government and troika officials agree that Greece has made efforts to reduce its debt pile, and could even achieve a primary budget surplus this year, the troika says more needs to be done to reform the Greek economy.
