People read messages left by passerby near the place where an elderly man shot himself in the head on April 4, 2012 at the central Syntagma Square, in Athens, a focal point of anti-austerity protests. Police said the 77-year-old, whose identity was not revealed, reportedly crying out that he did not want to leave his children in debt.
