Riots follow march in Greece


A march through Athens in support of a trade unionist who was attacked last month has been marred by violence.

The march itself had been peaceful, but afterwards some of the demonstrators launched an assault on riot police who were guarding the labour ministry.

Malcolm Brabant reports from Athens.
