ATHENS — The police on Thursday detained 60 people that participated in a surprise incursion into the health ministry in a show of support for convicted '17 November' terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas.

The group had earlier gathered outside the ministry in protest, throwing flyers and raising a banner expressing support for Koufodinas, who was recently transffered to a hospital after an extended hunger strike of more than 38 days. They then broke into the ministry entrance and police were called in, who detained those present and put them on buses to take to the police headquarters in Athens.
