The Greek Police is on a general alert, as it is believed that anarchists may carry out attacks against ATM machines and clashes may occur outside banks.
In the recent hours the Police have gathered information suggesting that organized attacks may be carried out against sensitive targets related to the financial measures and the bailout.
Officers currently on leave may be called to return to their posts, in order to be prepared to address potential problems. Patrols will be increased outside banks, ministries, state services as well as foreign embassies.
With a 60-euro daily limit on cash withdrawals, the queues outside banks and ATM machines are expected to swell, which may cause tension and scuffles to break out.
