Rows leave immigrant dead, another injured

One migrant was killed and another seriously injured in unrelated incidents in Thessaloniki and Athens over the weekend. A 46-year-old man was stabbed to death during an argument with a countryman in the center of Thessaloniki just before 11 p.m. on Saturday. Police arrested the suspect and were able to find the knife allegedly used in the attack. The nationality of the two men was not made public. About two hours later, a foreign man was shot in the leg in the trendy neighborhood of Psyrri in central Athens, following a row with two other migrants. The victim was taken to the hospital. No arrests were made. Meanwhile, an anti-racist march through the center of Athens on Saturday, organized by migrant organizations and student groups, passed off peacefully and ended with a silent protest in front of Parliament.
