ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek police fired rounds of teargas during a protest outside parliament in central Athens on Sunday evening where lawmakers were discussing controversial tax and pension reforms, a Reuters witness said.

A number of hooded protesters threw petrol bombs at police, who responded with stun grenades and teargas, forcing crowds to quickly disperse.
