Athens - Several hundred anarchists rioted during a protest to demand the release of the 67 arrestees being held from the December riots. Demonstrators smashed several banks, set fire to a bus station, looted a Nike store, attacked a security camera and threw stones and chunks of pavement at police who were firing tear gas. A fire bomb was thrown at the defense minister's office. A solidarity march in the western city of Patras attacked a newspaper building and some banks, causing damage.
