Turkish consulate targeted in dawn raid but no one is hurt
A group of around 15 people gathered outside the Turkish Consulate in Thessaloniki in the early hours of Saturday and attacked the guard post with homemade explosive devices, police said. The assailants, who had their faces covered, evaded capture by running into the grounds of Aristotle University. Police could not pursue them as they are prohibited from entering universities in Greece under an asylum law. No one was injured in the attack, which investigators believe to have been aimed at the policeman on duty rather than the consulate.
