Police and demonstrators have clashed in the Greek capital, after thousands of people gathered to mark the anniversary of a police shooting.

The demonstration marks two years since police shot dead 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos.
 
His death sparked weeks of rioting, the worst Greece had witnessed in several decades, bringing the capital to a standstill.
 
Last October, a police officer was jailed for life and another for ten years over the shooting.
