Greek Migrants Riot Over Death of Mother & Son
Greek police reports are stating that a group of migrants living outside the city of Thessaloniki are rioting over the death of a 35 years old mother and her 10 year old child. Migrants claim that the woman and child were struck by a car and the ambulance was late to arrive to the scene. The group of civilians pleaded that the officer take the woman and child to the hospital in a patrol car but they refused. The group of migrants took to rioting by blocking off the road to their camp, throwing rocks at police and setting fire to two patrol cars. The police responded with tear gas and stun grenades, but the migrants set fire to trash cans as a defense to the tear gas. The situation has defused, as of now, in the camp.
