Violent clashes erupt at Greek anti-cuts protest

Help

Greek police have fired tear gas to disperse anarchists throwing petrol bombs near parliament in Athens.

Dozens were arrested during the one-day strike against planned spending cuts of 11.5bn euros ($15bn; £9bn). It was the first union-led action since a conservative-led coalition came to power in June.

The savings are a pre-condition to Greece receiving its next tranche of bailout funds, without which the country could face bankruptcy in weeks.

Mark Lowen reports from Athens.
