Athens, Greece (AP) Police say groups of high school students have thrown rocks at four police stations in neighborhoods of western Athens. They say police did not respond and no injuries were reported.

Separately, hundreds of teachers, University lecturers and students are gathering in central Athens for a rally to protest the fatal police shooting of a teenager.

The weekend death of the 15-year-old has led to three nights of the worst rioting in Greece in decades, with masked youths rampaging across several cities. The explosion of rage has fed off months of growing discontent over the increasingly unpopular conservative government. It has been rocked by a series of scandals and has struggled to push through painful economic and education reforms.
