TWO PEOPLE HAVE been killed and another seriously injured after shots were fired by two people on a motorbike as it passed the offices of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party in Athens earlier.
It is not immediately known who the victims are, or if the attack, confirmed by local police, was politically motivated.
The shooting comes just weeks after the indictment of six Golden Dawn lawmakers for their involvement in a “criminal organisation” as part of a crackdown launched against the party after the death of an anti-fascist musician.
Some Greek media outlets reported that Golden Dawn members were claiming that the victims were guards at the party’s premises.
The injured person was rushed to hospital according to police.
Officers from police anti-terrorist units rushed to the suburb of Neo Iraklio, where the incident took place, and immediately cordoned off the surrounding area.
