Police fire tear gas at Greece train accident protesters

Thousands of people took to the streets of Greece on Wednesday and Thursday night to protest the death of dozens in a collision between two trains.

Riot police were present during demonstrations in Athens, after protesters gathered outside the headquarters of rail operator Hellenic Trains.

A government minister said austerity had contributed to a lack of investment in railways during Greece’s economic crisis in the 2000s.
