US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit has been accompanied by tensions and protests in Athens and Thessaloniki.
Under the slogan "Pompeo is undesirable", anarchists first gathered in Eleftherias Park to protest and then marched in front of the US Embassy. Greek media write that after 19:00, several incidents were recorded between protesters and police, with the latter responding by throwing tear gas.
In Thessaloniki, a group of citizens burned the American flag outside the US consulate on Tsimiski Street. Earlier, protesters painted and unfurled the American flag in the streets, wrote anti-NATO and anti-US slogans and passed over it.
