Greek students attack police stations in Athens

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek high school students attacked police stations around Athens with stones and firebombs on Thursday, injuring one bystander, in a sixth day of rioting sparked by the shooting of a teenager, police said.

“An elderly bystander was taken to hospital after he was hit by a rock,” said a police official who declined to be named.

More than 10 police stations from the coastal suburbs to western working class districts were attacked within one hour, he added.
