Thousands protest in Greece at Angela Merkel's visit


German Chancellor Angela Merkel was met by fierce protests whilst making her first visit to Greece since the eurozone crisis erupted nearly three years ago.

Some 7,000 police officers were on duty as volleys of tear gas were fired at groups, some of whom compared Angela Merkel to the Nazis.
