An ax-wielding Iraqi in s state of frenzy spread terror at the Thermopylae hotspot on Thursday.
According to initial reports by Lamianow, the incident occurred shortly after 13.00 on Thursday afternoon at the hotspot of Thermopylae.
Police arrived on the scene to deal with the incident, as the man was breaking windows and threatening to do harm because his request from the Ministry of Immigration to host him and his family at the camp was rejected.
Officials of the centre responded immediately by evacuating the facility to avoid anyone being harmed, as police managed to eventually calm him down and convince him to hand over the ax. He was then taken to the local police station.
