Members of self-styled anarchist group Rouvikonas stormed into a division of the environment and energy ministry in the central Athenian district of Ampelokipi on Wednesday afternoon, to protest the creation of a landfill near the town of Lefkimi, on the island of Corfu.

About 30 individuals made their way to the first floor of the building where they threw flyers with slogans against the move.

Police later detained 11 people.
