Protesters clash with riot police during a demonstration against President Barack Obama's visit to Athens on Nov. 15, 2016.

Greek police say about 3,000 anarchists, left-wing activists and students marched through central Athens.

There's a strong anti-American tradition among Greek left-wingers, who still resent U.S. support for Greece's 1967-74 military dictatorship.
