Greek creditor-demanded measures approved amid protests

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece’s lawmakers have approved a new batch of creditor-demanded measures that will impose further income losses on austerity-weary Greeks over the next three years.

The legislation was backed by all 153 deputies in Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ left-led coalition. All present opposition lawmakers in the 300-strong parliament rejected the measures.

Earlier Thursday, about 15,000 people protested against the cutbacks in a second day of demonstrations called by major trade unions outside parliament.

Dozens of masked youths broke out of the crowd to throw gasoline bombs at police guarding approaches to the building. They were repulsed with tear gas, and police said one man was arrested and two more detained on suspicion of taking part in the violence.

The protests came a day after a general strike disrupted services across the country.
