Clashes break out over injured protester
ATHENS — Demonstrators furious at the severe injury of a protester during an anti-austerity march clashed with riot police in central Athens on Thursday, the second day of violence in the Greek capital.
Hooded youths used hammers to smash up marble and paving stones from building facades and pavements, hurling the jagged chunks and firebombs at police, who responded with volleys of tear gas and stun grenades.
Running battles with police broke out through the streets of central Athens, with protesters setting trash cans on fire and one burning a Greek flag.
The clashes broke out during a demonstration by about 5,000 protesters from left-wing groups and unions amid condemnations of alleged police brutality over the wounding of a 31-year-old man in Wednesday’s protest against the government’s austerity measures.
The man is listed in critical condition in an Athens hospital after undergoing brain surgery.
