After hopes that the violence in Greece had begun to abate, fresh clashes broke out as youths threw firebombs and stones at police ahead of a demonstration. The unrest began after a 15-year-old boy was killed by a police bullet last week.

The government "has lost the confidence of the people": read our interview with Greek opposition leader George Papandreou.

AFP - Youths threw firebombs and stones at police who fired back tear gas moments before the start of a Friday demonstration in Athens over the death of a 15-year-old boy by a police bullet.
   
A few thousand people are participating in the demonstration, the latest in a series of protests held in the past seven days since the boy's death.
   
The killing of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos sparked a wave of anger that led to attacks on police targets and property earlier this week.
