Newsline: Greek Anarchists Target Iranian Embassy In Athens

A group of anarchists has attacked the Iranian Embassy in Athens to protest Tehran’s treatment of its Kurdish population, Greek authorities say. Police officials said that about 10 people armed with iron bars early on September 17 smashed windows in the embassy’s waiting room and threw red paint into the courtyard. Nobody was reported hurt in the attack. In a statement posted on the Internet, the anarchist Rubicon group claimed it carried out the attack in a gesture of solidarity with the “Kurds of Iran.” The group has carried out a series of similar attacks in Greece in recent years, targeting embassies, companies, and public buildings. The latest attack in Athens comes days after activists targeted the Iranian Embassy in Paris, throwing objects and smashing windows at the building.
