Protesters and police clash outside Greek parliament over Macedonia name

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Greek police fired teargas to disperse crowds gathered outside parliament on Thursday (January 24) to protest against a deal over the name of neighbouring Macedonia.

Hooded protesters hurled petrol bombs, stones, flares and firecrackers at police guarding the parliament, who responded with teargas and took several protesters into custody.

Several thousand people massed outside the Greek legislature, some of them chanting "traitors" as lawmakers debated ratification of an agreement reached with the neighbouring ex-Yugoslav state last year.

Protesters are planning new rallies for Friday, before the vote takes place around 1230 GMT.
