Greek police escort refugee children to school
Police in a northern Greek village escorted refugee children to school Monday, as local parents protested the launch of a national programme to educate migrant youngsters, an AFP reporter saw.
Around 100 police formed a corridor to enable some 40 puzzled-looking children from Syria and Afghanistan to enter the school at Profitis, a village a few kilometres (miles) north of Thessaloniki.
A similar number of parents -- who had earlier padlocked the school gate -- waved Greek flags and hurled insults at local education authorities.
"Our children will be raped and then, who will take responsibility?" one parent shouted.
