GREECE ERUPTS IN VIOLENCE: Riots in the streets of Athens over Obama’s visit

FURIOUS protesters have screamed for Barack Obama to “go home” and launched petrol bombs at police as the US President landed in Europe today.
Mr Obama’s visit to Athens, Greece, was supposed to be a grand farewell, but descended into chaos when angry rioters took to the street to demand he leave.

Youths riding motorbikes, carrying wooden clubs and launching petrol bombs tried to break a police cordon and confront Mr Obama directly.

Hooded left wing protestors took to the streets shouting “Yankees go home” and “we don’t need protectors” – a reference to Mr Obama’s announcement that he thought Greece should be allowed off the hook when it comes to its spiralling national debt.
Riot police firing tear gas were hurriedly drafted in to disperse the crowd, some of whom were waving placards and carrying flares, as they marched towards the US Embassy.

Molotov cocktails were also thrown at officers in the disruption.
