AFP - Riot police on Thursday stormed the Acropolis to break up a blockade of Greece's top monument by protesting culture ministry staff as the government faced fresh opposition to its austerity policies. The police broke into the monument perimeter through a side entrance and used tear gas to disperse media covering the event as they tried to corner the protesters and evacuate the site, which was closed to the public for the second day. The protesters grabbed on to fence railings to prevent their removal from the hilltop site overlooking central Athens as gathered tourists snapped pictures. At least one protester was detained as the police emptied the site, an AFP photographer said.
