13 immigrants injured in clash in downtown Athens

Thirteen Bangladeshi nationals were injured, and will be arrested following their release from hospital, in a clash between two opposing groups of foreign nationals in downtown Athens late Wednesday night, police said on Thursday.
Police said that more than 200 migrants were involved in the violent incident at the corner of Menandrou and Sophocleous streets.
They said that two opposing groups, comprising chiefly Bangladeshi nationals as well as other foreign nationals, clashed with clubs, crowbars, stones and other objects, resulting in the injury of 13 Bangladeshi nationals, who are hospitalised in an Athens hospital. Police said that all 13 will be arrested and taken before a prosecutor.
A strong police contingent rushed to the scene, where six migrants — from Bangladesh, Palestine and Algeria — were detained and are being held at the Acropolis police station, and will possibly be arrested together with the other 13.
Police noted that this was not the first time that violence of such extent has taken place among migrants in the center of Athens.
