Greek Riot Police Clash With Anti-Fascists

Greek Riot Police Clash With Anti-FascistsRiot police and anti-fascist protesters in Greece have clashed in central Athens, leaving at least two people injured.
Greek Police said more than 3,000 supporters of the extreme-right Golden Dawn party held a rally on Saturday to commemorate a 1996 dispute over an uninhabited Aegean Sea island that brought Greece and Turkey to the brink of war.
Saturday’s rally was largely peaceful, but violent clashes were triggered by the counter-demonstration, staged by leftist groups protesting against the Golden Dawn rally.
Six people were detained and one arrest was made.
Authorities had banned marches through the city to avoid bloody incidents breaking out.
