Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice cor­doned off the street in front of the Turk­ish Em­bassy in cen­tral Athens yes­ter­day fol­low­ing an at­tack by mem­bers of the an­ar­chist group Rou­vikonas. As­sailants splashed red and black paint on the en­trance and threw fly­ers protest­ing the al­leged crack­down on po­lit­i­cal free­doms in Turkey in the wake of the at­tempted coup. Po­lice ar­rested 11 sus­pects over the in­ci­dent, in­clud­ing a Spa­niard. All were later re­leased. Turk­ish Am­bas­sador to Athens Kerim Uras con­demned the at­tack in a tweet, say­ing ‘the Athens anar­chists are sup­port­ing the an­tidemo­cratic coup in Turkey!’
