Austerity bill OK’d by Greek lawmakers

ATHENS — Greece’s Parliament passed a crucial austerity bill early Thursday in a vote so close that it left the coalition government reeling from dissent.

The bill, which will further slash pensions and salaries, passed 153 to 128 in the 300-member Parliament. It came hours after rioters rampaged outside Parliament during an 80,000-strong antiausterity demonstration, clashing with police who responded with tear gas, stun grenades, and water cannons.
