Po­lice yes­ter­day said an ar­son at­tack on the French In­sti­tute in Athens could be con­nected to a case of al­leged po­lice bru­tal­ity near Paris last month. A French po­lice­man has been placed un­der for­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tion for sus­pected rape and three oth­ers for un­nec­es­sary vi­o­lence dur­ing the Fe­bru­ary 2 ar­rest of a 22-yearold man in Aul­nay-sous-Bois out­side the French cap­i­tal. The in­ci­dent has sparked a se­ries of demon­stra­tions in France against the al­leged po­lice mis­treat­ment of the man – iden­ti­fied by his first name, Theo – who was hos­pi­tal­ized with in­juries to his rec­tum and head. Mon­day’s at­tack on the French In­sti­tute in Athens caused mi­nor dam­age but no in­juries. A car parked out­side the build­ing was torched, dam­ag­ing a sec­ond ve­hi­cle nearby. The uniden­ti­fied at­tack­ers also smashed win­dows at the cul­tural in­sti­tute.
