Suspected supporters of the neo-fascist Golden Dawn party desecrated the Muslim cemetery of Alexandroupoli in northern Greece, local media reported Tuesday.

The vandals spray-painted the cemetery with nationalist graffiti and the party’s swastika-like emble, while scattering fliers saying “Greece belongs to the Greeks.”

Golden Dawn – currently on trial for running a criminal organization – gathered 4.9 percent of the vote in Sunday’s elections for European Parliament, earning two seats in the assembly.
