Riot police attacked in Exarchia

Unidentified arsonists attacked a riot police unit stationed in the central Athens district of Exarchia early using Molotov cocktails that caused damage early on Saturday but no injuries.

The firebombs destroyed two cars and a motorcycle that had been parked near the corner of Tositsa and Zaimi streets.

Police later detained two people for questioning while several residents complained that riot police officers had resorted to undue and excessive violence.
