FinMin Varoufakis and his wife assaulted at Athens restaurant

A group of about 30 youngsters verbally attacked Yanis Varoufakis and his wife Danae Stratou as they were dining at a restaurant in central Athens, Greece.

The incident happened around 11pm on Tuesday in the Exarchia area, a well-known Athenian neighborhood where anarchists often gather.

The Greek Finance Minister was initially insulted by the group for his political actions and then they both left the restaurant to continue arguing outside of the premises.

There were no reports of violence, but first witnesses reported that the talk was definitely not in a friendly tone. Finally Varoufakis managed to calm the group down and left the area.
