Tear gas used on protesters in Athens
June 30, Athens: Tear gas has been used in the stand-off on Friday in Athens, after the authorities banned rival demonstrations by a police union and anarchists.
According to reports violence had erupted last night close to the National Technical University in the Greek capital. Protesters had allegedly hurled firecrackers at police, causing heaps of garbage, which has piled up in the streets amid a 10-day trash collectors strike, to go up in flames. The protesters also threw Molotov cocktails at riot officers, said the riot Police.
