Suspected burglars fire at police in southern Athens
The occupants of a car that failed to stop when asked to do so on Monday morning by police in Faliro, southern Athens, opened fire on officers.
No policemen were hurt in the incident. Members of the DIAS motorcycle-riding squad were called to the area after a break-in at an apartment. They attempted to stop a blue car they thought looked suspicious but were fired upon.
The DIAS officers responded by firing back but the car sped off.
