Protracted rioting threatens the Greek economy and regional stability, the government says.
Unrest rippled throughout Greece Tuesday, with protesters hanging banners in Athens, attacking a police station, and hijacking the country's main television stations. The violence enters its second week as protesters hope to build momentum toward a planned nationwide strike on Thursday.
