Police call for expert exam on Independent Greeks leader following assault

Police on Thursday called for a state medical examiner to examine the leader of the right-wing party Independent Greeks, Panos Kammenos, who was assaulted on Wednesday afternoon by demonstrators taking part in an anti-fascist protest close to where the leftist rapper, Pavlos Fyssas, was killed by a member of ultra-right Golden Dawn on Tuesday night.

The order came as police were seeking the perpetrators involved in the attack, which led to Kammenos suffering a nosebleed.
