The following article was published in the major Greek daily Eleftherotypia on Wednesday (17 December 2008).

Six cops were slightly injured and ten police and private vehicles were damaged by an attack that occurred yesterday (16 December 2008) at 12 o'clock in the afternoon, at a building of the Greek riot police forces in Kesariani in eastern Athens.

The attackers, who are alleged to have worn hoods and anti-authoritarian masks, came from a University and split into two teams. One team attacked the parking lot from Imitou St. and the other hit the entrance of the building. They threw rocks and wood in order to break the windows of the building and proceeded to use Molotov cocktails.

The cops inside the building responded with "stun grenades" and tear gas in order to repel the youngsters.

According to an statement by the police, six cops were injured and one police cage was damaged, along with a police bus, a police jeep, police cars, and private cars.

In the meanwhile, there were three cases of arson at about two o'clock in the morning on Monday at three banks. Police sources claim their windows were also broken.
