Rioters protest police shooting

The New York Times reported Sunday that riots broke out in Athens, Greece over the police shooting of 15-year-old boy.
Two police officers have been arrested in connection with his death, one with manslaughter and the other with aiding him.
The boy was shot in a confrontation with police Saturday night.
After the shooting, hundreds of teenagers rioted in the streets, burning cars and businesses.
Six people were arrested for stealing from stores and boutiques.
Police countered the rioters with teargas, and the Athens police spokesperson said that dozens of officers had been injured in the riots.
Witness accounts differ about the shooting, but some say that about 30 teenagers mobbed a police car throwing stones, which caused the officers to fire shots.
