About 30 people forced their way into Athina theater in central Athens on Sunday night and interrupted a performance to protest against the extradition of five Greek students to Italy.

The demonstration took place despite the fact that Greece’s Appeals Court has rejected Italy’s extradition request for four of the five students, who are accused of being involved in rioting at the Milan2015 Expo.

The court is due to decide the fate of the fifth student on Monday.

The intruders, who entered the theater at around 10 p.m., left before the police arrived.
