A pensioner pushes a riot policeman during scuffles between protesting pensioners and police near the EU offices. About 500 pensioners participated in an anti-austerity march at the EU offices in central Athens a day before German Chancellor Angela Merkel visits Greece. About 6,000 policemen will be deployed in the capital for her 6-hour visit, turning the city centre into a no-go zone for protest marches planned by labor unions and opposition parties.
