Molotov cocktails & tear gas: Protesters & police clash in Athens before austerity vote


A thousands-strong protest against new austerity measures in Athens turned violent, when a small group of masked demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails and other projectiles at the police, who fired tear gas and pepper spray.

People took to the streets of Greece’s capital for the second consecutive day to protest new pension and tax-break cuts, which are expected to be voted on at around midnight Thursday.
