Greece: Gypsy protest after police accidentally kill 6-year-old girl
Dozens of youths in a Gypsy area outside Athens clashed with police Wednesday after a 6-year-old girl was accidentally killed by a police motorcycle.
The youths hurled rocks and flares at riot police and set fire to trash bins, and police responded with tear gas.

Police said a 22-year-old police office was arrested in connection with the girl's death but had not yet been charged.
