AN angry mob riots in Greece — over a clampdown on violent protests.
Six cops were hurt when they came under fire from a hail of petrol bombs, bricks and stones.
Around 200 masked thugs staged the attack at the rally opposing the move to try to curb future political demos.
Riot police hit back with tear gas and stun grenades and TV footage showed one officer engulfed in flames.
Violence broke out in central Athens, outside the Greek parliament, after the group broke away from the main rally of around 10,000 left-wing demonstrators.

They had gathered to protest at the new law brought in by Greece’s conservative government to regulate demos which regularly cause massive disruption.
PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis tried to placate the protesters, conceding: “One’s freedom to protest is as valuable as another person’s freedom to reach the hospital, his work, his home.”
Opposition leader Alexis Tsipras said the new measures allowed heavy-handed policing and predicted the pandemic-driven recession would cause large protests later.
