CRISIS IN GREECE -- This fascinating collection of photos shows violent riots in Athens during the worst economic crisis in Greece since the end of World War II. In 2012, the economy of Greece... More > began a deep decline. This financial crisis caused the government in Athens to impose strict austerity measures in hopes of stopping the crisis.

As a result, peaceful demonstrations quickly turned into wide-spread rioting, as police used harsh measures to break up the demonstrators. Hundreds of innocent citizens were injured, some killed, and thousands of people were reduced to living in poverty. Today, just a couple of years since the crisis began, some civil stability and economic recovery is beginning to be felt. But much is still needed to remedy the situation and bring full recovery.< Less
