Clashes have erupted in Greece between police and a group of far-right protesters who were demonstrating against the influx of refugees into Greece and the growing presence of Muslims in the country.
Scuffles broke out in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city, on Monday.
The protesters were predominantly members of the right-wing group “Sacred Band.”
Meanwhile, a group of around 200 antifa held a counter-demonstration nearby. The latter rally was organized by the Movement against Racism and the Threat of Fascism (KEERFA).
A large number of police officers were deployed to prevent possible clashes between the two groups.
