Greek riot police and protesters clashed in central Athens as demonstrators tried to cut down a statue of former U.S. leader Harry S. Truman.
As the protest over Syrian airstrikes grew spilled over into violence, police and demonstrators can been seen trading blows. At one moment an officer falls to the ground and is kicked and punched by two protesters.
Police can also be seen striking demonstrators with batons. Some protesters then flee into traffic to escape. The crowd also scatters as tear gas is fired by police.

Bomb Explodes Outside Appeals Court in Athens

Bomb Explodes Outside Appeals Court in Athens
A makeshift bomb exploded outside an appeals court in Athens early on Friday causing damage, police officials said.
There were no reports of injuries.
Two Greek media organizations received warning calls before the explosion at 0250, one police official said.
The individual who called in the warning about the explosion insistently asked that the buildings be evacuated but did not name any organisation as responsible.
Police, who had cordoned off the area, found a bag which contained the explosive material outside the building.
Counter-terrorism police and forensics investigators are at the crime scene looking for evidence. According to police there were three perpetrators, of which two left the bag with the bomb outside the entrance while the third was waiting in a van.
The perpetrators were detected by a police guard that was inside the building, who saw two individuals leave a bag (which contained the bomb) outside the entrance.
When the driver of the van saw the guard he shot once at him without injuring him.
