Police are clashing with protesters who hurled petrol bombs and bottles in central Athens after mass anti-government rally turned violent.
Riot police used tear gas and pepper spray against scores of demonstrators after the violence broke out near parliament.
About 50,000 people joined the union-organized march in central Athens on Wednesday, held during a general strike against new austerity measures planned in the crisis-hit country.
The strike closed schools and disrupted flights and most services.
