Greek protests after 'neo-Nazi' killing

Anti-fascist protesters have held demonstrations across Greece following the killing of a left-wing activist by a suspected neo-Nazi.

In some cities police fired tear gas to keep the protesters at bay.

A 45-year-old man has allegedly confessed to stabbing Pavlos Fyssas. The suspect is a supporter of far-right party Golden Dawn, blamed for a tide of attacks on immigrants.

Greece's Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos said it must now be treated as a "criminal organisation".

Mark Lowen reports from Athens.
