Greek parliament approved a controversial austerity deal Sunday so the indebted country can get a bailout from the European Union. After the vote, angry Greeks began rioting and hurling fire bombs and stones at police and storefronts.By Monday morning, the violence had subsided. The EU told Greece that the vote was welcome, but more action was still needed to avoid default and “disastrous consequences.” Greeks used Twitter and YouTube to share scenes of the turmoil with the rest of the world. Mashable has collected tweets, photos and videos that best represent the riots and the day-after reckoning of the damage.
