ISTANBUL - A dozen Turkish demonstrators sprayed red paint on the Greek consulate late Wednesday to protest the police shooting of a teenager in Athens that has unleashed nationwide violence in Greece.

The protesters, who identified themselves as Istanbul-area anarchists, lobbed balloons and bottles of paint at the building. They also broke the consul's car windows before fleeing. No arrests were made.
