Police early on Wednesday detained 10 suspected members of the anarchist group Rouvikonas – the Greek name for Rubicon – who barged into the departures area of Athens International Airport and started shouting slogans near the check-in desks of Israeli airline El Al.

The protesters shouted “No to the agents of Mossad” and “No tolerance to the bullying of Mossad” as travelers were waiting to check in to their flight.

In a posting online, members of Rouvikanos said they had staged the protest because last month a Colombian who was returned to Spain with his family was beaten by security staff working for an Israeli airline at Athens International Airport because he was considered suspicious.
