Protests over Greece bailout

Protesters in Greece have taken part in anti-austerity rallies following the approval of the next Greece bailout payment by Eurozone ministers. The first tranche of the $11.4bn installment will be paid at the end of April. More than 10,000 people gathered in Athens to demonstrate against the deal, which will require Greece to introduce a series of law reforms, putting services such as pharmacies under treat.

Authorities banned all protests in a large section of central Athens for the Eurogroup and a later meeting of all European Union finance ministers. Nevertheless, some 7,500 anti-austerity demonstrators held three separate protests outside the exclusion zone, and some tried to break through a riot police cordon blocking their way to Parliament.
