Clashes have erupted in Athens, in Greece, as a demonstration against police violence turned to chaos. At least one police officer has been seriously injured in the ensuing violence. Videos have begun emerging showing mass skirmishes between the protestors and the police.
Demonstrators can be seen throwing petrol bombs and Molotov cocktails and flares in the videos now being shared on social media.
The initial protests were prompted by a video that appeared to show a man being beaten by officers in the area.
More than 5,000 people marched through the densely populated residential area of Nea Smyrni.
Some demonstrators held banners reading “cops out of our neighbourhoods.”
