MERKEL RIOTS: German Chancellor Angela Merkel sparks violent clash in Athens

The riots were sparked by the German Chancellor’s arrival in Athens earlier today for talks with Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

Mr Tsipras said the visit marked “the end of a difficult cycle between our two countries”.

Germany has been blamed by some Greeks for tough austerity measures imposed after the country required a series of bailouts following the 2008 financial crash.
