As a three-day general strike that paralyzed large parts of Greece ended Sunday, the leftist government of Alexis Tsipras won a Parliamentary vote to bring about tough austerity measures. "Hostages of Syriza's austerity," headlines Athens-based daily Ta Neain its Monday edition.
Over the weekend, outside the Parliament in Athens, protesters threw firebombs at police officers, who replied with tear gas, in the first signs of what could be another long, hot summer in Greece.
