Second firm withdraws drugs from Greece over cuts

Another Danish pharmaceutical company has withdrawn products from Greece in protest at the government's decision to cut the prices of medicines by 25%.

The Leo Pharma company says it is suspending sales of two popular drugs because the price reductions will cause job losses across Europe.

The Greek government is struggling with a debt crisis.

It has condemned as unfair the action of Leo Pharma, and another Danish company, Novo Nordisk.
