Anarchists turned night into day in the area around the Polytechnic School in downtown Athens on late Wednesday.
They hurled petrol bombs and stones at riot police squads and set garbage bins on fire.
Police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
On of the city’s main avenues, Patision Street, was closed to traffic form Alexandras Avenue to Omonia Square until 3: 30 in the morning.
Two men were detained, they are to be brought to prosecutor on Thursday. One of them is a Greek national, 21, the other one is Italian, 25 years old. The latter was holding a sledgehammer when he was arrested.
Reason for the riots? Greek media do not spare a word about it.
PS I suppose ‘reason’ is the usual anti-authoritarian attitude.
