Athens cleans up after night of chaos

The Greek capital may feel like a city down on luck but residents are far from down and out.

    In Athens, there is been a major cleanup operation after damage caused during anti-austerity riots on Sunday night.

    Forty five buildings were burned, and shops were smashed and looted, as protesters aired their anger over the package of cuts being approved by parliament

    It has added to the sense of despair about the future in Greece.
