ATHENS, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Greek protesters clashed with police and set fire to cars and a hotel in central Athens on Wednesday as tens of thousands marched against austerity measures aimed at pulling the country out of a debt crisis.
Riot police responded with dozens of rounds of teargas in clashes that lasted more than an hour in the biggest and most violent march since three people died in protests in May. Police chased hooded youths who threw sticks and stones.
Hours earlier, parliament approved reforms and spending cuts that are a condition of a 110-billion-euro ($150-billion) EU/IMF bailout granted in May in exchange for austerity measures.
