Patis­sion closed for an hour

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A sec­tion of cen­tral Patis­sion Street was closed off to traf­fic late Wed­nes­day for one hour due to street clashes be­tween un­known as­sailants and a riot po­lice unit in the the area sur­round­ing the his­toric Athens Polytech­nic build­ing in Exarchia. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the clashes be­gan at around 10 p.m. after a group of in­di­vid­u­als threw Molo­tov cock­tails and rocks at riot po­lice sta­tioned at the in­ter­sec­tion of Patis­sion and Tositsa Streets. Such at­tacks are quite fre­quent, but have shown an in­crease in the past few weeks.
