ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek police say they are searching for five people suspected of involvement in the killing of an Iraqi migrant in central Athens, and suspect they also attacked two other foreign nationals earlier in the day.
A police statement said the young man, whose name and age has not been disclosed, was attacked Sunday morning with a sharp instrument. He was taken to a hospital but died several hours later.
Police say a Romanian and a Moroccan were attacked earlier, but managed to flee. They did not specify if they had sustained injuries.
Attacks on immigrants have been on the increase in Greece amid public fears they are to blame for a rise in crime.
