Mob attack Turkish bank in Greece

Around 25 people attacked a Turkish bank in the northern Greek city of Komotini on Tuesday in response to the Turkish occupation of the town of Afrin in Syria, Greek newspaper Kathimerini said.

The assailants, it said, said they were “anti-establishment anarchists” acting in solidarity with Kurdish fighters in northwest Syria.

They badly damaged the glass of the branch of Turkish state-owned Ziraat Bank, but no one was hurt, the newspaper said. So far, no one had been arrested over the incident.

It follows attacks on Turkish targets including mosques, shops and restaurants across Europe by those angered by the Turkish invasion of Afrin.
