Keratea residents protesting planned landfill clash with police

Incidents broke out yet again Sunday night in Keratea, eastern Attica, between riot police and residents in continuing protests against the construction of a landfill in their district.

The violence erupted when hundreds of protesting residents attacked the MAT riot police forces on Lavriou Avenue, where locals have set up a roadblock.

Riot police used teargas to disperse the protestors, while homemade firebombs and rocks were thrown against police.

Calm was restored shortly after midnight.
