Athens buildings burn as lawmakers weigh austerity

ATHENS, Feb 12 (Reuters) – Historic cinemas, cafes and
shops went up in flames in central Athens on Sunday as
black-masked protesters fought Greek police outside parliament,
while inside lawmakers looked set to defy the public rage by
endorsing a new EU/IMF austerity deal.

As parliament prepared to vote on a new 130 billion euro
bailout to save Greece from a messy bankruptcy, a Reuters
photographer saw the buildings engulfed in flames and huge
plumes of smoke rose in the night sky.
