European economic commission says rioters against austerity are far from representing the Greek majority

European Union economic affairs commissioner Olli Rehn slammed on Monday the "unacceptable" violence seen on the streets of Athens ahead of a parliamentary vote on a new round of austerity measures.

"These individuals do not represent the vast majority of Greek citizens who are genuinely concerned for the future of their country," Rehn said in a statement released after he addressed a Brussels news conference.
