Greek cities hit by fresh rioting
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7770887.stm
<snip>

Fresh clashes have broken out between police and protesters in at least two Greek cities, after the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy by police.

About 300 students are reported to be battling police in Thessaloniki, while protests turned violent in Trikala.

Five demonstrations are planned in major cities later, including a mass rally by the Communist Party in Athens, where Saturday's shooting occurred.

Two police officers have been arrested in connection with the boy's death.

One of them, who is accused of murder, said he fired a warning shot and that the boy was killed by a ricochet, but witnesses told Greek television that the officer aimed directly at the boy.

Greeks don't joke. See how quickly those cops were arrested.
