A prosecutor in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki has pressed charges against unidentified persons who burned a Turkish flag during a Greek-Armenian demonstration in front of Turkey's consulate in the city last month.
The perpetrators are to be brought to justice under the charge of insulting the symbol of another state after they are identified via photographs and video shot during the demonstration, a local justice source said on Wednesday. The incident took place on April 24 during a demonstration to mark the 92nd anniversary of an alleged genocide of Anatolian Armenians under the Ottoman Empire era during the World War I. Turkish consular officials complained to Greece over the flag burning.
