Greek police fire teargas at protesters in Athens during Obama visit | Reuters

ATHENS Greek police fired teargas at protesters marching in Athens during a visit by U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday. About 7,000 people, among them may hooded protesters and members of the Communist affiliated group PAME, marched through the streets of central Athens holding banners reading "Unwanted!". Some of them threw two petrol bombs at police. Obama, who will be succeeded in January by Donald Trump, arrived in Greece on Tuesday on his last foreign tour as president of the United States.

He said he would continue to emphasise the United States' view that "austerity alone cannot deliver prosperity".
