The raid on the centre, which strikers protesting austerity measures had occupied on Thursday, took place at around 4:00 am (0200 GMT), police told AFP.

Four people were temporarily detained but later released, they said.

The government has ordered a civil mobilisation to force the Athens metro staff to halt their strike, which has disrupted traffic in the Greek capital for over a week.
