ATHENS — More than 100 people have been detained for questioning at police headquarters for violating a four-day police order (November 15-18) banning rallies during Athens Polytechnic Day commemorations on Tuesday.

Scuffles broke out at Kaisariani Park, where antiestablishment groups ended up after a protest march that started in the neighborhood of Vironas. Meanwhile, tensions were reported at Sepolia, central Athens, between police and parties of the extra-parliamentary Left. Similar incidents were also reported at Larissis train station in Athens on Tuesday.

Seven people who were earlier arrested in central Athens during a Communist Party gathering were released, police added.

Following incidents on Tuesday, they also shut down Metaxourgeio, Monastiraki, Victoria, Attiki, Sepolia and Stathmos Larissis, later adding the shutdown of Syngrou-Fix metro station as well.

As of early evening, metro trains ran through the above stations without stopping.
