Thessaloniki Cultural Institute Vandalized

THESSALONIKI — Greek police say the entrance of a French cultural institute in the northern city of Thessaloniki has been damaged in an attack by about a dozen youths who hurled rocks at the building, smashed windows with bats and sprayed foam from a fire extinguisher.

No one was injured in the incident that occurred early Monday at the Institut francais, before opening hours.

The Greek Foreign Ministry issued a statement in French condemning the attack as an “act of barbarism.”

Police made no arrests and there was no immediate claim of responsibility.
