Greek police fire teargas at protesters on anniversary of riots


Greek police fired teargas on Wednesday at youths marching in Athens to mark the ninth anniversary of the killing of a teenager by police in an incident that sparked the worst riots for decades in a country with a history of street violence, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

 

Before Wednesday’s march, Reuters witnesses saw young people wearing hoods smashing paving stones to use as projectiles and street poles to break window displays.

 

 

A few hundred students, among them dozens of black-clad youths, marched through central Athens chanting “Resist!”, waving red and black flags in a tribute to 15-year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos who was shot dead in 2008.
