ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's government has taken 2,330 archaeological sites, monuments and museums out of a state assets fund, after protests by Greeks who feared their heritage might be sold off.

Knossos Palace in Crete was one of the priceless items put into the fund - a holding company owned by the Greek state - to satisfy Greece's foreign creditors under the last financial bailout in 2015.
