Christian Orthodox activists shout slogans and hold up crosses and placards as they are held back by riot police during a protest outside a theater in Thessaloniki on Wednesday night. The ‘Holy Company’ and other religious groups organized the rally outside the northern port city's Aristoteleion Theater in protest at a play titled ‘Devil's Hour.’ A few tried to barge into the theater and stop the performance.
