Twenty-five people have been arrested out of the 38 detained by Greek riot police late Wednesday outside Parliament ahead of a crucial vote regarding a new agreement between Greece and its creditors. All 25 faced a prosecutor on Thursday.

The violent protests broke outside the House on Wednesday, with riot police forces responding with tear gas.

Peaceful marches protesting the new bailout deal had taken place earlier in the day.
