Hundreds of high school students rallied Thursday in Athens to commemorate a 15-year-old boy who was shot by police in 2008, sparking weeks of protests by Greek youths.

Since the start of the demonstration, small groups of youths have fired bullets at the police. Security forces responded with tear gas.

Thousands of police have been deployed in the center of the Greek capital to contain the moves to commemorate the anniversary, which witnesses clashes between youths and security forces.
