Two Syrian refugees beat up an Orthodox priest

A priest has been beaten up by two Syrians in Athens.

According to the newspaper, the incident took place outside the Sanctuary of St. Nicholas in Patisia, Athens.

When the priest was going to the Sanctuary he noticed that one motorcycle was illegally parked in the garden of the temple. After the priest complained to the Syrian owners about that, both the perpetrators started to punch him.

As a result of the sudden attack the priest was injured. Until now the Greek police have arrested one suspect.

Since the start of the migrant crisis Greece is one of the refugee hotspots in Europe. A lot of migrants are in camps on its island but others have moved to its cities.

It has resulted in numerous incidents in for example Athens. In April last year, a massive fight started in the Greek capital between Algerian and Pakistani migrants.

During the fight, the migrants started throwing tables and bottles of beer at each other, with Greeks and tourists witnessing the scene caught up in the melee and beaten as well.
