Greek anarchists run riot at Athens university

Greek police used tear gas early today to disperse about 60 suspected anarchists who rioted outside an Athens university, hurling petrol bombs and stones. The clashes began at around 3am (0100 GMT) when around 60 hooded youths went on the rampage outside Panteion University following a party, police said. The anarchists damaged eight parked cars and several shop windows near the university. A power cut was caused in the surrounding area when a fire extinguisher was hurled at a low hanging power line. Police detained six suspects and no injuries were reported.
