Attica regional authorities said on Wednesday that a second round of voting would be held this Sunday in the 18th polling station in Exarchia, near central Athens, as vandals damaged the ballot box last Sunday.

Unidentified saboteurs burst into the polling center while clerks had been counting ballots.

The vandals set fire to the ballots and also injured two police officers.
