Illegal gambling den uncovered in Athens suburb

Two people have been arrested after police raided an illegal gambling den in Kallithea, southern Athens.

The raid took place on Saturday night, when police entered the property, which had been decorated like a casino and had five blackjack tables, four roulette tables and 16 PCs that allowed customers to play games of chance.

A 27-year-old Syrian man employed to manage the casino and a 37-year-old Bulgarian woman who was working as a waitress were arrested.
