Greek police have released chilling statistics which reveal that more than 13,700 cases of domestic violence – overwhelmingly against women – were recorded between 2013 and 2017.
The Athens-Macedonia News Agency reported a police source saying 2017 alone saw 3,134 cases of domestic violence involving 4,234 victims.
Women made up 70 percent of these victims, the source added, with the number of females killed in such assaults double that for men.
