A petrol bomb, thrown by protesters, explodes near riot police during a violent protest in Athens' Syntagma square October 18, 2012. Greek police fired teargas to disperse anti-austerity protesters hurling stones and petrol bombs on the day of a general strike that brought much of the near-bankrupt country to a standstill.
