Hundreds of neo-Nazis march through Athens
ATHENS (AFP) - Hundreds of Greek neo-Nazis marched with torches through the streets of Athens late on Wednesday to commemorate the 560th anniversary of the fall of Constantinople in 1453.
The militants from the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party shouted "Blood, honour, Golden Dawn" and "Greece belongs to the Greeks." After several fiery speeches against the Turks and communists in the square outside Athens cathedral, they marched on parliament, where the party has held 18 seats since June.
The annual march concluded without incident, unlike last year when a Pakistani man who found himself in their path was attacked by 15-20 neo-Nazis.
This year's march did cause concern among tourists in the Greek capital.
