Anti-fascist campaigner 'killed in Athens knife attack'

Police in Greece have arrested a man in connection with the fatal stabbing of an anti-fascist campaigner in Athens in the early hours of this morning, according to local media reports.

Paul Fyssas, who is also known by his rapper name Killah P, is reported to have got into an argument with the suspect after a football match in a late-night cafe in the Piraeus suburb.

Witnesses say the 34-year-old activist and his friends were attacked by a gang of 10-15 individuals outside the venue. Fyssas was reportedly pursued by a car before the driver approached him and stabbed him several times.

Several Greek newspapers report that police have stormed the offices of the right-wing Golden Dawn party following the incident, and that the party has denied any involvement.
