Anarchists hit more targets in Exarchia

A group of about 15 self-styled anarchists went on a spree of vandalism in the central Athens district of Exarchia at lunchtime yesterday, according to police, who failed to arrest the troublemakers. The hooded youths first hurled stones and paint at the new offices of main opposition party PASOK and then at the office of former minister Giorgos Voulgarakis, which is opposite PASOK’s new premises. They also trashed three parked cars. Police think the same suspects then attacked a bank branch on Solonos Street and a bookstore owned by right-wing LAOS Deputy Adonis Georgiadis. Later in the afternoon unidentified assailants hurled a Molotov cocktail bomb at the offices of the Ministry of Press and Mass Media in Kallithea, opposite Panteion University. The extent of the damage caused by that attack, and whether it was the work of the same group, was unclear.
