Fresh wave of violence follows night of calm

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.
