|Protests turn violent as Greek parliament prepares to vote on new austerity measures |
After sun down, otherwise peaceful anti-austerity protests in Greece, have turned violent.
Masked protesters clashed with riot police in Athens, ahead of a vote on a unpopular reform package to secure much-needed bailout funds.
Thousands of people rallied over further belt-tightening measures including tax hikes and pension cuts in the country already hit by six years of austerity.
