Tension continued in Keratea, eastern Attica, on Tuesday after residents protesting the construction of a landfill in their district emptied several truckloads of rubble on all the roads leading to Lavrion throughout the night.

The only access open for vehicles is the Athens-Sounion coastal road.

Incidents broke out at dawn when a municipal plow truck attempted to remove the rubble.

Protestors attacked and burned the plow truck, while they also scuffled with police.
