Anarchists Attack Police in Athens, One Tourist Injured (video)

Anarchists Attack_Tourist InjuredThe Exarcheia area in central Athens became once again a battleground between police and anarchists early Sunday morning, leaving one Portuguese tourist injured. The riots happened a day before the seventh anniversary of the killing of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos by a policeman.
The fights started a little before midnight on Saturday when a group of hooded men attacked a riot police unit in the corner of Stournari and Zaimi streets. The anarchists threw molotov cocktails, rocks and flares at the police, who replied using stun grenades.
The scattered attacks around Exarcheia continued. Around 2:00 am, a rented van carrying four Portuguese tourists was attacked. The perpetrators threw rocks at the car and injured the driver on the head. The injured tourist was carried to the “Giorgos Gennimatas” hospital.
