Athens: Gay Couple Beaten by Homophobic Mob


A man in Athens had to undergo surgery after he and his partner were beaten by a homophobic mob.

A homophobic mob of as many as 15 people assaulted a gay couple in Athens Saturday, Greek newspaper Kathimerini reports.

The couple, whose names were not released, sustained multiple injuries in the attack, and one had to undergo surgery on his ankle. The 10 to 15 attackers were between the ages of 25 and 30.

According to U.K. site Pink News, another gay couple in Athens was beaten by police last month for holding hands.
