Tension in Greece as supporters of the a far right group clash with police. The conflict started after locals attacked forces guarding this abandoned factory in the town of Patras, the country's third largest city. Members of the nationalist group Golden Dawn came armed with batons, stones and Molotov cocktails. The factory has been a temporary home to many immigrants, including many from Afghanistan. It has also been a sore point for many Greeks after an immigrant was accused of murder. Promising to rid Greece of immigrants, and with a swastika-like logo, Golden Dawn is the first far-right party to enter parliament since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974. Deborah Gembara, Reuters.
