Greek journalist stabbed in Zagreb

A Greek journalist was slightly injured late Monday after he was stabbed by a member of a group of hooded men in Zagreb, Croatia, ahead of a Champions League Dinamo Zagreb-Olympiakos game on Tuesday.

The journalist, along with a fellow Greek colleague, were reportedly walking in the city center when a group of alleged Dinamo supporters approached them and demanded to see identification. When the Greek journalists presented their passports, one of the members of the group allegedly attacked one of them with a knife, before fleeing the scene.

According to witness reports, a second group of hooded men surrounded another group of Greek journalists at the same spot later on. Tension was diffused after the Greek journalists showed their press cards and told the men they were in town to cover Tuesday's game.
