Anger over court verdict - Thessaloniki, Greece

Young activists clashed with police today outside the central courts in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki when the police officers involved in a Rodney King style beating of Cypriot student, Augustinos Dimitrios in 2007 walked free after being given suspended sentences. The event which was captured live on shocked audiences with its savagery.

In the wake of the verdict many fear that the case of the teen who was shot by a 37 year old police officer will be swept under the carpet once protests die down.

See here for video footage of the incident.
