Greek police detained some 60 people in Athens after suspected anarchists burnt a bank ATM late Monday, authorities said. Nobody was injured in the petrol bomb attack in central Athens, which caused minor damage. Police responded by raiding cafeterias frequented by suspected anarchists in the city center, detaining around 60 people. Nobody was arrested or formally accused of involvement in the fire-bombing, which was the latest of a string of similar attacks. A number of small anarchist groups have claimed responsibility for the attacks, in which petrol bombs and homemade gas-canister bombs were used against banks and government buildings and vehicles in Athens and Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city. Anarchists throwing stones and petrol bombs have repeatedly clashed with police this year, during a series of student protests against government plans to end a state monopoly on university education [från Herald Tribune].
