A large demonstration by anti-establishment and leftist groups in central Athens to mark the killing by a police officer of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos in 2008 ended on Wednesday.

Protesters marched from Propylea to Syntagma square and then to Omonia square, shouting slogans against the police. A group of youths broke away from the main body of the demonstrators and went to Exarchia where a rally is planned at the corner of Tzavella and Mesolongiou where Grigoropoulos was shot dead.

Traffic in the center has been restored.
