A group of anarchists threw molotov cocktails at police in Athens as thousands of Greeks marched to the US Embassy to mark the 45th anniversary of a crackdown on a student uprising against the military dictatorship then ruling Greece.

More than 5,000 officers were on duty for the demonstration, which commemorates those who died in the crackdown.

The annual march is often used as a means of expressing displeasure with various Greek, European and American policies.
