Bags of litter are piling up on some of the streets of the Portuguese capital Lisbon – where refuse collectors have been on strike for three days over plans to privatise the sector.

Unions representing the workers estimate that 85 percent of refuse workers are taking part in the strike, which is due to end on January 5.
