Greek police clash with protesters

Protests turn violent as thousands mark the anniversary of the 2008 police killing of a teenager.



    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.
