ATHENS — Police proceeded with arrests of four Greeks and an Italian on Thursday, following a march to the US embassy to protest the murder of George Floyd.
Late on Wednesday, seven people were brought in for questioning after incidents between protesters and police.
Police said two of the Greeks detained on Thursday are accused of attacking police with rocks and other objects, and the rest are accused of damage to store fronts at Kolonaki Square and of throwing marble pieces at police. The Italian male is also accused of using a fire extinguisher against police and throwing a metal stand at them, damaging three police motorbikes.
All five are appearing before a prosecuting magistrate.
