Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

In what has be­come a fre­quent oc­curence in the Greek cap­i­tal, a riot po­lice unit sta­tioned on Har­i­laou Tr\\u03B9k­oupi Street, cen­tral Athens, came un­der a hail of rocks and Molo­tov cock­tails hurled by un­known as­sailants early yes­ter­day morn­ing. No one was in­jured and no ar­rests were made. The in­ci­dent fol­lowed street clashes late Mon­day be­tween pro­test­ers and riot po­lice in the sub­urb of Zo­grafou over the evac­u­a­tion ear­lier in the day of two build­ings which had been oc­cu­pied by squat­ters and mem­bers of anti-es­tab­lish­ment groups since 2012. The some 800 pro­test­ers also de­manded the im­me­di­ate re­lease of seven peo­ple who were ar­rested dur­ing the evac­u­a­tion of the build­ing. Po­lice used tear gas to dis­perse the demon­stra­tors who set fires to street dump­sters and hurled stones. The ri­ots caused dam­age to two banks and two mo­bile phone stores.
