Migrant dies after running onto electric railway track at Thisseio

An African man died in central Athens on Friday night after running onto the Kifissia-Piraeus electric railway (ISAP) track at Thisseio station, where he was electrocuted.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the man, thought to be a street trader from Senegal, was being chased by municipal police officers when the incident occurred.

Witnesses said that there was a heavy police presence in the area late on Friday and that a large group of migrants had gathered near the station. There were unconfirmed reports that authorities used tear gas to disperse the immigrants.

Thisseio, close to the Acropolis, attracts a lot of visitors in the evenings due to the high number of cafes, bars and restaurants in the area.

Police had not commented on the incident by 1 a.m. on Saturday.
