A youth with a bag attacks a riot police officer as another protester tries to restrain him during a rally in Athens on Monday, Dec. 6, 2010. Youths hurled rocks and oranges at a government building in central Athens during a student protest to mark two years since the fatal police shooting of a teenage boy that sparked Greece's worst riots in decades. Police closed roads and deployed several thousand officers around the city but maintained a minimal presence at the site where some 1,500 students gathered outside Athens University's main buildings.
