Merkel in flying visit to Greece


German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Athens yesterday, a symbolic visit to mark the economic rehabilitation of a nation that over the past four years has threatened the stability of Europe and its single currency.

Merkel's visit, which comes the day after Greece returned to international bond markets, will last six and a half hours. She will meet Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Greek business people, before a news conference and early dinner.
