Greece: Tear gas fired at cuts protest in Athens

Greek police fired tear gas and pepper spray at pensioners during an anti-austerity protest in which some of the elderly demonstrators tried to tip over a riot police bus blocking a road to the prime minister’s office.

More than a thousand people, some of them with canes, took part in Monday’s demonstration against more cuts to pensions.

No arrests or injuries were reported.
