Greeks in pre-trial detention for migrant shooting

A Greek fruit exporter and three foremen arrested over a near-deadly shooting attack against migrant labourers were placed in pre-trial detention on Monday, police said. The four men were arrested in the Peloponnese peninsula last week after the incident in which around 30 strawberry pickers demanding long-overdue pay were wounded, some of them seriously. The Supreme Court prosecutor on Monday said the victims would be granted special protection to prevent their deportation so they can testify.

Suspected shooters arrested for migrant attack: Greek police

Greek police on Friday arrested three men who allegedly shot and wounded almost 30 migrant strawberry pickers who had demanded long-overdue pay, an official said. "The three men have been arrested," a police source told AFP. The suspects, who work as strawberry field foremen, were caught in the town of Amaliada in the southern Peloponnese peninsula, a few kilometres (miles) from the village of Manolada where the attack occurred on Wednesday.
