Greece Erupts in Riots, Three Dead in Fire
Today in Athens, street battles broke out between police and protesters, as marches approached the Greek Parliament building. Numerous cars and buildings were set on fire, including a branch of Marfin Bank, where three employees were killed by smoke inhalation.
