Syria bombing protest erupts into RIOT as activists try to topple US President statue
SYRIA bombing protesters clashed with riot police as demonstrations against the airstrike attack by US, UK and French forces saw furious activists try to pull down a statue of former US President Harry Truman.
Protesters used a metal grinder to try to cut off the statue’s feet and tug it down with ropes before riot police intervened and fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.
At least three protesters from the Greek Communist Party were injured, with blood trickling from their heads, according to reports.
The statue suffered minor damage following the riots on the streets of Athens.
