Hundreds of left-wing protesters demonstrating against German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit to Greece were met with tear gas as they clashed with police in Athens on Thursday.

Protesters chanted slogans and attacked a police bus with flags, as seen in footage filmed on Thursday. Police dispersed the protesters by using tear gas.

Many protesters blame the German Chancellor for the policies of austerity endured by Greeks since 2010.
