Greek police used teargas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators who had assembled outside parliament on Thursday to protest a draft law discussed by lawmakers attempting to regulate street protests in the country.

Witnesses saw people running away from police and thick plumes of smoke rising in Syntagma Square, outside the parliament building in Athens. Earlier at least three petrol bombs were thrown towards police. [Reuters]
