Violent anti-immigrant protest and beatings of migrants by far-right groupsMay 12, 2011
Police have detained 25 people in central Athens following a violent anti-immigrant protest by far-right groups. The rally was held after a man was stabbed to death during a street robbery.
The man was taking his pregnant wife to the hospital to deliver their second child on Tuesday. He was robbed of the video camera he was carrying when stabbed. Riot police later had to intervene as protesters chased immigrants.
Police say no suspects have yet been identified. An evening vigil with candles and flowers at a makeshift memorial took place later. Violent far-right groups have seen an increase in support in Greece in recent months.
