Thessaloniki man escapes second attempt on his life

A 54-year-old man in Thessaloniki survived an assassination attempt on Wednesday when an unknown gunman opened fire at him at the entrance to his apartment building.

The victim is being treated in a local clinic after suffering facial injuries.

Police are investigating the incident, which was the second attempt on the man’s life in the past six months.
