Two Keratea residents hurt in clashes with police

Two people were injured in clashes with police in Keratea, southeast of Athens, on Wednesday.

Locals have been protesting since the start of December against the construction of a waste management center in their area.

This has often led to clashes with police and Wednesday saw a prolonged confrontation between protestors and riot officers who have been drafted in to help guard the site of the proposed facility.

It is not clear how the two local residents, a 65-year-old man and a younger man, were injured.
