Refugee boy’s home targeted by racist vandals

Amir, an 11-year-old Afghan, holds a piece of cardboard reading "Go away, back to your village, go away," left by unknown attackers who pelted his home with stones and bottles early Friday. Amir was chosen to carry the Greek flag at an Ochi Day parade. However, he was not allowed to carry the flag and instead carried the school’s sign. Parties and migrant groups condemned the attack.
