Incidents broke out Wednesday night in Keratea, eastern Attica, between police and residents in continuing protests against the construction of a landfill in their district.

The violence erupted on Lavriou Avenue, where locals have set up a roadblock, and spread to the local police station, which was besieged by protestors.

Riot police used teargas to disperse the protestors, while homemade firebombs and rocks were thrown against police at both sites.

Extensive damage was caused to six patrol cars and to a lesser degree to the Keratea police station late at night by persons wearing masks.

According to police, a handful of hooded individuals attacked the police station at around 2 a.m., throwing firebombs and rocks.
