    [02] Protest by local residents at site of deadly inner city mugging

    (ANA-MPA) -- The stabbing death of a 44-year-old local man at dawn on Tuesday in downtown Athens continued to generate heated protests by residents in the inner city neighbourhood.

    Roughly 300 people rallied on Thursday afternoon near the spot where the victim was attacked while retrieving his car from a parking lot to take his pregnant wife to a maternity ward to give birth. The victim was attacked by three assailants, who stabbed him and stole his video camera. According to reports, grainy images of the attackers have been detected on CCTV footage in the area.

    A memorial service was held at the scene of the attack and demonstrators holding Greek flags chanted slogans against the presence of illegal migrants in the country.

OPAP (0.69 pct) was the only blue chip stock to end higher, while Piraeus Bank (4.85 pct), National Bank (4.61 pct), Ellaktor (4.42 pct) and Viohalco (4.25 pct) were major losers.

    The Travel sector was the only one to end higher (0.61 pct), while Financial Services (3.70 pct), Banks (3.61 pct) and Food (3.42 pct) suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day.

    Broadly, decliners led advancers by 98 to 42 with another 48 issues unchanged. Vovos (17.43 pct), Demetriou (11.11 pct) and Lambrakis Press (10.53 pct) were top gainers, while Tegopoulos (18.18 pct), Unibios (14.29 pct) and Hatzioannou (12.5 pct) were top losers.
