Xenios Zeus raids lead to fewer arrests

A total of 645 migrants were temporarily detained by police officers in downtown Athens late on Wednesday as part of the ongoing Xenios Zeus operation aimed at curbing illegal immigration, the Hellenic Police said in a statement on Thursday.

According to the statement, only four of the 645 migrants were charged for not having documents proving legal residence in Greece.

A total of 20,929 immigrants have been questioned by police since the launch of the Xenios Zeus operation in early August. Of these 2,446 were arrested on charges of illegal residence.
