Police investigate Golden Dawn after protester's death

The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party Nikolaos Mihaloliakos has been arrested on charges of forming a criminal organisation.

Police are currently investigating the party for links with the killing of an anti-fascist rapper by a self-proclaimed Golden Dawn supporter.

The stabbing to death of Pavlos Fissas on 17 September sparked violent protests in the capital of Athens.
