Greek policeman hit by petrol bomb

Police in Greece have been involved in violent clashes with demonstrators in the capital Athens.

The violence erupted during a rally by more than 30,000 angry workers near the Greek parliament. They object to the government's far-reaching budget cuts.

The strike paralysed public transport. More than 100 flights were cancelled.
