Greek protests turn violent

Today, protests erupted in Greece after the government announced cut backs in federal wages and pensions in the wake of its current financial crisis.

Thousands of angry Greek citizens, outraged at how the government is handling the country's mounting debts, took the the streets, and police forces were dispatched to handle the crowds.  However, things turned violent, three protesters have now died, and clashes between citizens and the police have been documented on video and uploaded to YouTube.
