In this photo taken on Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015, machinery used to monitor production lies idle at the control room of an abandoned metal pipe-making factory. Hellenic Pipe Works was founded in 1967 and exported 80 percent of its production to the United States. In 1994 it was acquired by a construction group and was shut down in 2011. It still employs 30 people who show up once a week in shifts to prevent looting and claim they have not been paid in four years.
