Greek rioters resumed violent protests in Athens following the killing
Greek rioters resumed violent protests in Athens following the killing of a 15-year-old teenager by police eight days ago, local police said on Sunday.

Several hundred protesters set fire to three banks and several shops overnight in the Greek capital, the police said.

Greece's worst riots in decades earlier swept through more than 10 cities following the killing of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos on December 6, leaving a trail of destruction as youths looted shops and set fire to hundreds of cars, banks and businesses.

Two police officers have been detained over the killing. One of them, Epaminondas Korkoneas, was charged with murder and illegal use of his weapon. The second officer, Vassilios Saraliotis, was charged with abetting his partner.
