At least 40 shops and several cars were damaged in Friday's
At least 40 shops and several cars were damaged in Friday's riots in the Athens, local police said.

About 150 hooded youths, armed with sledgehammers and steel bars, entered the Kolonaki district in central Athens on Friday afternoon, smashing shop windows and cars. The attackers fled after police used tear gas, scattering leaflets identifying them as members of anarchist groups.

No casualties have been reported, and no arrests were made.

Greece has seen regular street violence since last December's worst riots in decades, sparked by the killing of a teenager by police. Last week a home-made explosive device went off outside a Citibank branch in Athens.
