Greece: Police and protesters clash during pro and anti refugee protests

Clashes erupted between police officers and protesters in Oraiokastro, a suburb of Thessaloniki on Friday night, when pro- and anti-refugee rallies took place simultaneously.
Police officers attempted to keep the two groups apart, but the situation escalated and resulted in the police being attacked themselves.
Around 214 Syrian refugees were detained by Greek police on Monday, when they crossed the Evros River from Turkey to Greece. Overall, more than 1 million refugees crossed through Greece since the beginning of 2016.
