Clashes erupt during Athens protest

Clashes have broken out between protesters and police in Athens, as hundreds marched on parliament.

The protesters took to the streets on the anniversary of the 2008 shooting of a student by police.

Turnout was thought to be lower at Tuesday's march compared to similar protests in previous years, but violence flared as pieces of broken pavement, sticks and petrol bombs were thrown.
