Things appeared to have calmed down at Exarchia Square in Central Athens early on Monday morning following clashes between the police and anti-authoritarian groups marking the seventh anniversary of the shooting of teenager Alexis Grigoropoulos.

Earlier, groups of young people had attacked riot police with Molotov cocktails and rocks, while the police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse them.

So far (Monday morning), thirty-five people have been detained while another 100 people are still gathered at Exarchia Square.
Three police members were injured in the clashes.

Earlier in the day, police had also found over 100 Molotov cocktails in the Strefi area of Athens ready for use.
