ATHENS - Greek journalists will file a lawsuit against the police minister on Wednesday over violence by riot police against reporters during anti-austerity protests last month, their union said on Tuesday.

More than 100 people, including journalists, were injured in clashes with police outside parliament on June 29 and 30, as lawmakers voted on austerity measures needed to secure a bailout and keep Greece from bankruptcy.

"This is a message to many recipients: Journalists will show no more tolerance," the head of the Greek journalists' union, George Savvidis told Reuters. "We want the minister to be investigated, as well as the police."

The lawsuit will be filed on July 13, he said.
