ROME — Protesters in Rome smashed shop windows and torched a car as violence broke out during a demonstration in the Italian capital, part of worldwide protests against corporate greed and austerity measures.

Black smoke billowed into the air in downtown Rome as a small group of violent protesters broke away from the main demonstration Saturday.

Police were out in force as some 100,000 protesters were expected a day after Premier Silvio Berlusconi survived a confidence vote in Parliament. Italy is rapidly becoming a focus of concern in Europe's debt crisis.

Protesters nicknamed "the indignant" also marched in other European cities.
