Greek police fire teargas at protesters during Merkel visit
ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek police fired teargas at demonstrators throwing stones and petrol bombs in central Athens on Tuesday to protest a visit by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Merkel was meeting Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras only a few hundred meters away from the clashes. Tens of thousands of austerity-weary Greeks took to the streets in one of the biggest protests in months.
