Protest vandalism hits Greek embassy

Dec. 10, 2008 at 2:01 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Political uproar in Greece spread to New York early Wednesday following the breakage of a window at the Greek embassy and a message about a police killing.

"Alex was here" and "Murderer" were scrawled on the building on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, Newsday reported. Alexandros Grigoropoulos, 15, was shot and killed last week by police in Athens, triggering demonstrations and riots in the capital and around the country.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said that the vandalism is being investigated as a bias crime.

Investigators were checking for fingerprints around the broken window and trying to determine if security cameras caught anything, Kelly said.
