Violence at Greek demo in memory of teen killed by police

Masked youths on Wednesday threw stones and vandalised property in Athens during annual protests in remembrance of a teenage boy killed by police in 2008. The small groups of youths also tore down street signs, toppled garbage bins and set fire to debris. Riot police were on the scene but generally did not interfere.
