Youths have thrown petrol bombs and stones at police, who fired tear gas to disperse them, during a march in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki commemorating the fatal shooting of a teenager by a police officer 13 years ago. No arrests or injuries were reported after the clashes, which did not last long. They came at the end of an otherwise peaceful march by about 6,000 people Monday. The 2008 killing of the 15-year old boy in Athens triggered weeks of the worst riots the Greek capital had seen in decades. Several thousand people staged a protest march in Athens also late Monday, which ended peacefully. Minor clashes followed when youths threw stones at police.

Israel’s Justice Ministry says that two police officers have been brought in for questioning following the shooting death of a Palestinian who stabbed an Israeli man in east Jerusalem. Israeli police shot the Palestinian dead after he stabbed and wounded an ultra-Orthodox Jew just outside Jerusalem’s Old City. A widely circulated video shot by a bystander appeared to show an officer from Israel’s paramilitary Border Police shooting the attacker when he was already lying on the ground. The incident prompted calls for an investigation. The Justice Ministry's police investigations unit said Sunday the officers were released without any conditions after being questioned.

The Ohio sheriff’s deputy who fatally shot Casey Goodson Jr. in the back five times asked Friday to move the criminal case into federal court. Attorneys for Meade argue that as a member of a U.S. Marshals Service taskforce, Meade was operating as a federal agent at the time of the December 2020 shooting of Goodson. Meade, who is white, also pleaded not guilty in state court Friday to charges of murder and reckless homicide in the killing of 23-year-old Goodson, who was Black. A magistrate set a $250,000 bond for the now retired Meade. A lawyer for Goodson's family criticized the bond as too low given the circumstances.
