  • [01] Italy-bound vessel loaded with illegal migrants sinks; 22 missing

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greek coast guard units, aided by air force planes, were scouring a sea region west of the Ionian island of Corfu on Sunday morning for survivors of a wooden vessel that reportedly sunk while ferrying more than 250 Afghan illegal immigrants towards Italy.

    Some 22 people on the 30-metre vessel were still missing, authorities said. Conversely, 241 illegals were picked up by a passing freighter.

    [02] Opposing demonstrators clash

    (ANA-MPA) -- Two people were arrested and 13 detained for questioning after clashes broke out between demonstrators heading to a widely publicised "anti-racism" rally and participants at a rival counter-rally in the strife-plagued inner city district of Aghios Panteleimonas.

    Riot police used teargas to disperse the crowds at the Aghios Panteleimonas square, where the two rallies met up on Saturday afternoon.

    An anti-racism rally was staged in downtown Athens, followed by a march through various downtown neighborhoods heavily populated by migrants, which at ended up at the Aghios Panteleimonas square where a concert was scheduled but later cancelled.

    On the other side, some 200 local residents -- also joined by self-styled far right nationalist youths -- held a demonstration protesting the heavy presence of illegal immigrants in the neighborhood, along with rising crime and drug trafficking.
