Violent clashes continue between police and protesters in Greece for a second night, in and around the capital Athens.

Demonstrators have been throwing petrol bombs, bottles and other objects at buildings and police, who have been responding with tear gas.

The riots were sparked by the shooting of a teenage boy on Saturday evening.

Greek Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos has appealed for restraint.
