Greece: Immigrant Knifed on Election Night

Violence against immigrants has been steadily mounting in Athens since last year's spate of attacks, especially before the recent elections which saw the extreme right Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) party gaining 18 seats in parliament. A video surreptitiously filmed in an Athens subway station on election night, June 17, and captioned in English, fleetingly shows the knifing of an immigrant by what was reportedly a Chrysi Avgi youth member. Twenty five suspects detained over the incident have been released; two of the party's MPs arrested over an earlier attack, have also been released.
