Bor­der shoot­ing.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A sus­pected peo­ple smug­gler opened fire on Greek po­lice of­fi­cers at the Greek-Turk­ish bor­der shortly af­ter mid­night on Thurs­day, prompt­ing the of­fi­cers to shoot back, but there were no re­ports of any in­juries. The gun­man, who had been hid­ing on the Turk­ish side of the bor­der, fired at the of­fi­cers with a pis­tol at least three times, po­lice said. A group of 11 un­doc­u­mented mi­grants, iden­ti­fied as Moroc­cans and So­ma­lians, were de­tained along with their sus­pected Turk­ish smug­gler. A sim­i­lar in­ci­dent oc­curred in the area last month, also with­out in­juries.
