Athens, Greece (AP) Clashes have broken out at Athens' main court complex, where two police officers accused in the fatal shooting of a teen were testifying.

Protesting youths hurled molotov cocktails at the courts and police fired tear gas. The protesters also attacked and damaged a television satellite truck. At least two people were hurt.

The fatal shooting of the 15-year-old boy Saturday sparked massive riots across Greece that left hundreds of stores smashed and looted and undercut support for the fragile conservative government.
