Greek protesters occupy state TV, interrupt news

ATHENS (Reuters) - About 20 student protesters occupied Greece’s state television channel on Tuesday, interrupting a news broadcast in a demonstration against the police killing of a teenager.

“They came peacefully. There was no force used and they asked to protest on the air about the 15-year-old’s killing,” said a police official, who asked not to be identitied.

The channel showed images of the protesters for several moments before quickly cutting to advertisements and footage of the prime minister talking to his legislators in parliament earlier on Tuesday, the eleventh day of demonstrations following the shooting.
