The crowd, joined by a handful of Greeks, paid its respects Saturday to 27-year-old Shehzad Luqman, whose coffin was displayed inside a hearse. He was killed Thursday.
The mourners displayed a banner saying in English and Greek, “Punishment to the fascist murderers of Shehzad Luqman.”
Several organizations, including unions, anti-racist activists and soccer fan clubs, held an anti-racist demonstration later in the day.
Two Greek men in their 20s have been charged with murder. Authorities found pamphlets for the ultra-right Golden Dawn party at a suspect’s house. [AP]
