Police Face Volley of Molotov Cocktails as Latest Bailout Cuts Meet Anger in Athens

As angry demonstrators gathered outside the Greek parliament in Athens, politicians voted on May 18 to approve a new round of austerity measures demanded by creditors before the release of a 7.5 billion tranche of the countrys bailout. Protesters rallied in Syntagma Square for a second day of protests against new pension cuts and the scrapping of tax breaks. A small group of protesters hurled Molotov cocktails, as seen in this footage, while riot police fired tear gas. On Wednesday, thousands walked out of their jobs and marched to parliament to show their opposition to the bailout demands.
