Protesters hold up banners as others clash with Greek riot police during a demonstration against the latest reform measures demanded by creditors, in Athens on May 8, 2016Greek riot police fired tear gas to disperse petrol bomb-throwing protesters in Athens Sunday as thousands took to the streets in anti-austerity demos ahead of a vote by lawmakers on a controversial tax and pensions overhaul. Hooded youths lobbed flares and Molotov cocktails at officers who responded with volleys of tear gas, AFP reporters saw in clashes outside the parliament in the early evening, where some 10,000 protesters turned out to show their anger at the latest reforms demanded by Greece’s creditors.
