Greek unemployment rises to 27.6 pct in July

ATHENS, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Greece's jobless rate rose to 27.6 percent in July from a downwardly revised 27.5 percent in June, reflecting the impact of a six-year, austerity-fuelled recession, the country's statistics service (ELSTAT) said on Thursday.

The reading was more than twice the euro zone's average of 12.0 percent in August.
