Migrants attacked and beaten by police in Kipseli, Athens

On May 3, 2012 around 18:30 a police patrol walking along the pedestrian in Fokionos Negri in Kipseli, Athens headed towards a group of three migrants sitting and talking on the square. The officers asked the migrants to follow them into a calm side street where they beat the up. They never asked to control their papers.
One Palestinian migrant was hurt so badly that he fainted. One of his friends could escape; the other is not severely injured. The Palestinian 19-year-old was transferred to a hospital at 20. As eye witnesses reported the officers had been directed by a well-known member of the far right party golden dawn to the migrants.
