Three Golden Dawn extremist right-wing party members have arrived at an Athens court for a preliminary hearing into charges of participating in a criminal organisation.

The Greek government says it will present a bill targeting racist hate speech, as part of a crackdown on the Golden Dawn party after the killing of an anti-fascist rapper last month.
