Greek Austerity Cause Riots and Unrest

Monday, February 13, 2012

There is a real, boiling anger, a sense that they have been betrayed by their own leaders and by their supposed partners in the European Union. The question this morning is whether Greece can be held together. Chris Morris with our partner the BBC was in Athens last night as the clashes unfolded.

Evangelos Stephanou took part in the Athens demonstrations yesterday.
