Greek police fired clouds of tear gas at about 3,000 protestors who demonstrated this week during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Some of the protestors hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police and stores. One banner read, “Condoleezza killer go home, hands off Iran.” Rice was on a trip to Greece, Turkey, and Bulgaria to discuss regional issues and meet with NATO foreign ministers to plan the agenda for next fall’s NATO summit. Greek protesters claimed that the true purpose of the trip was to line up allies for military action against Iran.
