Tourist attacked in Athens for shopping on a Sunday

He said he was attacked by the men upon exiting a store on Ermou Street, in Athens city center. He said on camera that “I was walking with my family, and they came near and punched me for no reason. I didn’t tell them anything, I didn’t know them. They told me ‘do not shop’.”

The incident occurred after the end of a rally by unionists and employees against the Sunday operation of stores, in front of the victim’s wife, daughter and mother-in-law.
