Muslims mark Eid with outdoor prayers in central Athens
Thousands of Muslim immigrants gathered for outdoor prayer services across Athens on Tuesday to mark the festival of Eid-al-Adha.
Dozens of riot police were deployed in the city centre to protect the immigrants from attacks by extreme right-wing demonstrators who tried to disrupt the prayers.
Reports said a handful of protesters threw eggs at the group of faithful in central Athens before police intervened early on Tuesday.
