Greece strike: Debt-ridden country starts 24-hour walkout | Mail Online

Greek riot police have fired teargas at petrol bomb throwing youths and charged them wielding batons as 10,000 public sector workers marched to protest against budget cuts and high taxes.

The country is today in the grip of a 24-hour national strike which has seen flights grounded, schools shut and people on the streets trying to storm the Athens parliament of its bankrupt government.

Violence broke out as anarchists mixed with the marchers and started attacking more than 1,000 police with any weapons they could find.
