BUENOS AIRES – Four people were injured and five others arrested in a clash between police and a group of protesters who threw stones and fire bombs at the Greek Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentine police said.
The protesters are members of an anarchist group that is demanding the release of Giannis Dimitrakis, a Greek anarchist sentenced to 35 years in prison for a 2006 attack on a bank in Athens.
Three police officers and one of the detained protesters were hospitalized for treatment of wounds sustained in the disturbance.
The clash started when demonstrators tried to set fire Tuesday to the door of the embassy, which is located in the La Recoleta district.
Anarchists used the Internet to organize protests in several countries.
The Greek government plans to decide on Wednesday whether Dimitrakis will remain in prison. EFE
