Police led to suspected guerrillas via DNA after a suspect accidentally shot himself in the leg during a raid

Two suspected urban guerrillas allegedly linked to planned attacks on foreign embassies in Athens have been remanded in custody after a high profile anti-terrorist operation in the Greek capital.

The two men, both in their 40s, were jailed after appearing before a public magistrate charged with membership of the terror group, Revolutionary Self Defence, which has claimed credit for assaults on both the French and Mexican embassies. Under Greek law they can be detained for up to 18 months pending trial.

“Even if the entire #EU mechanism is mobilized” it would not be able to manage this “tsunami of people,” the minister in charge of Migration stressed.

He underlined that “doctors or #asylum officers are faced with hundreds of arrivals every day and , of course not being able to respond.”... Show more...

Officer Giorgios Marietakis describes sailor Kushila Stein’s rescue after she lost an oar

On a rescue mission, Capt Giorgos Marietakis only ever has one rule: to tune into his senses and envision the person he is out to save. On Sunday, he put himself into what he imagined would be the mindset of Kushila Stein, a 45-year-old New Zealand woman lost at sea for close to three days.

“I had an image of her being hungry and thirsty,” he said. “I tried to get into her head and think of what she would do. I imagined her beginning to despair and I thought of her doing whatever she could to survive.”

Opponents of legislation say it will severely curtail access to safeguards for asylum seekers

Greece has passed a controversial asylum law aimed at curbing the rising number of migrants arriving on its shores, despite mounting criticism it will roll back fundamental human rights.

The 237-page bill, entitled “international protection and other provisions”, has provoked the ire of human rights groups, aid organisations and opposition parties, who claim the law will severely curtail access to safeguards for asylum seekers.

Turkish offensive and Idlib battle add to Greek concerns over rising asylum claims

Turkey’s military push into Syria has sparked fears in Greece, already struggling with a rise in the number of asylum claims in recent months, of a new wave of migration to Europe.

With camps on Aegean islands at breaking point, Athens has insisted the topic should lead the agenda at this week’s EU summit. “Europe shouldn’t be caught unprepared again,” Giorgos Koumoutsakos, the Greek minister for migration policy, told local media. “Nobody can be certain what is going to happen.”

On the 9th of October 2014 “Loukanikos”, internationally known as the “Riot Dog”, passed away in Athens at the age of 10.

His health was adversely affected by being repeatedly kicked by cops and from the asphyxiating teargas that the police routinely fire at protesters.

The spirit of Loukanikos lives on in our riots.

Moria camp mourns a woman killed last week – but accounts of riots and attacks on firefighters are false

First light is greeted with what sounds like a lament, a prolonged howl that casts a pall over the olive groves that surround Moria. At first it’s a disembodied cry lost among the twisted silver and green tree trunks that surround the camp on all sides. The sound is even more disconcerting when it starts to shift up and down through the registers. But it’s not a grief-stricken howl, it’s a singing drill. Mohammad is finishing his morning vocal warm-up and tuning his guitar.

The fearsome reputation of Moria, Greece’s most notorious island refugee camp, conditions expectations and can distort reality.
