Riot police fired teargas on at protesters demonstrating just a few kilometers from the presidential mansion where the Greek president was hosting a state banquet for visiting US President Barack Obama.

According to Reuters, the clashes broke out during a protest of about 7,000 people, which included various groups opposed to US policies and the election of Donald Trump.

The police clashed with the protesters after they tried to break through cordon lines to reach the parliament building and the US embassy.

Some demonstrators threw petrol bombs at police before dispersing into nearby streets.
