Police targeted in Athens

TAGS: Crime

A crowd of around 100 youths set upon a riot police unit stationed outside the main campus of Panteion University in Athens Thursday afternoon.

The incident was preceded by some members of the group heckling an on-duty officer dressed in civilian clothes nearby before beating him up and then pelting the unit with plastic chairs taken from a nearby cafeteria.

No one was seriously injured in the assault and there were no arrests.
