Greek protesters break into office building

ATHENS, June 29 (Reuters) – Protesters using ladders broke into the first floor of an office building on Syntagma Square on Wednesday and attempted to set it on fire, witnesses reported.

Some 30 protesters entered the building, which houses a branch of Greece’s second largest lender Eurobank (EFGr.AT) on the ground floor. They were driven out by riot police who were able to stop them from burning the offices, the witnesses said.

The building stands on the square outside parliament where hundreds of masked, stone-throwing demonstrators clashed with police for several hours on Wednesday.
