Greek police fire teargas at protesters in Athens

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek police fired teargas at a group of protesting youths on the margins of a march against the government’s EU-backed austerity plans on Wednesday.

“A group of 50 youths tried to storm the university building and riot police fired teargas to stop them,” said a police official who requested anonymity.

About 20,000 workers marched to parliament to mark a 24-hour strike against austerity measures in what were otherwise peaceful protests.
