Clouds gather over the Acropolis in Athens at sunset Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, prior to a union anti-austerity rally a day before the visit by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Greek authorities are keen to prevent embarrassing riots during Merkel's visit. More than 7,000 police will be on security duty in the capital from early Tuesday, while public gatherings will be banned in much of the city center and on a 100-meter radius from the route her motorcade will follow. The ban will not affect the main protests, but will prevent demonstrators from reaching the German embassy, where a populist right wing party was planning a protest. (AP Photo/Dimitri Messinis)
