ATHENS, Greece (AP) — More than 2,000 pensioners chanting "We can't live on 300 euros" marched through central Athens Thursday to protest plans by the country's left-wing government to overhaul the pension system.
Hundreds of Moroccans, Algerians and Pakistanis tried to storm the Greek-Macedonian border on Thursday, tearing down part of the barbed wire at the crossing and demanding to continue their journey to northern Europe. Some protesters threw stones at police while others fell to their knees shouting "We want to go to Germany." A few ran across into Macedonia but were quickly detained by police.
