Police have used tear gas to disperse crowds at a rally in Athens organized to protest plans to set up a state security division at university campuses.

Police have detained five people during a small protest outside Maximos Mansion on Wednesday over the closure of the food service sector due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Some protesters held a banner reading "We are hungry."
The five were led to Syntagma police station.
No more information was immediately available.
"Going out onto the streets and protesting in a traditional manner is associated with risk, so for the moment we are focused on organising our actions online, in a safe manner," said Kozak. "For now, this is a warning strike, but we might escalate it if our request to dismiss the education minister is not heard."
