One of eight suspects remanded over attack on Mesolongi police station

One of eight people arrested on Wednesday night after an attack on a police precinct in Mesolongi, western Greece, was remanded in pretrial custody on Friday.

Two other suspects, aged 19 and 20, were released on bail, while the other five were granted unconditional release.

The 27-year-old man who was remanded is believed to have been one of several people who threw Molotov cocktails, rocks and sticks at the police station after an officer tried to stop two men from erecting a protest banner on a public building in the center of Mesolongi.
