The US State Department on Monday unveiled its annual human rights report scrutinising every country and territory in the world, sans one, the United States.

In its report on Greece -- beyond the same material found in the 2009 report -- the authors pointed to several instances of alleged abuse of illegal aliens and Roma (gypsies) by police and security authorities in the country. Moreover, extensive use of allegations, claims and reports by various NGOs, supporters of illegal immigrants, human rights advocates and local media dispatches were quoted in the State Department document.

According to the State Department's website, the "Country Reports on Human Rights Practices are submitted annually by the U.S. Department of State to the U.S. Congress."
