Athens strikers riot

Riot policemen clash with some 16,000 union protesters in Athens, Greece during a new nationwide general strike.

Riot police detain a young man in an Athens metro station following clashes with demonstrators on Tuesday, June 29, 2010. Officers earlier dragged the suspect off a train and sprayed him with pepper gas. Some 16,000 people took part in two separate demonstrations, the second of which turned violent as stone-throwing youths fought with riot police. (AP Photo)
