Organized "mob" attacks Open TV crew covering devastating fires in NW Athens

The mob punched in the face Kostas Alatzas, assaulted the cameraman and even stole his bag with personal belongings and pushed Spyraki inside the car.

She said said later with a broken voice that four policemen were very close and did nothing other than watching.

The attitude of the police raises questions and everybody is waiting for some official statement.

The “mob” was not some residents in ooutrage but an organized group wearing black clothes and with shaved heads. Swears were heard normally common in the far-right political front.

The Open TV crew had managed to film at least one of them and his face was broadcast later.

The attack has been reportedly condemned, so far, by representatives of New Democracy, SYRIZA and MeRA25.
