Report from mass-media ( A "red beret"-styled incendiary attack by around 20 hooded persons was realised at 5:30 in the dawn against the Police Station of Perama. The unidentified persons riding 10 motorbikes targeted the parked patrol cars outside the Police Station. The youth hurled two molotovs and a firework to provoke confusion and then threw 41 gas canisters beyond the police patrol cars and next to the police motorbikes. From the fire caused, 3 vehicles were totally wrecked, and another two seriously damaged. More than 4 motorbikes were burnt. Local residents were terrified from the loud blasts. Policemen found dozens of gas canisters near the police station. The perpetrators of the attack, on their way back, set a garbage bin on fire and set it on Irinis Avenue as a barricade, to make the police hunt after them more difficult.
