Pro- and anti-refugee rallies ended up with clashes in Oreokastro, a suburb of Thessaloniki, on Friday. The opponents of the refugee influx protested against the decision of Greek Education Ministry to allow the first 1,500 refugee children to attend Greek schools starting from October 10. Police officers attempted to keep the two groups apart, but the situation escalated and resulted in police being attacked themselves.
