Self-styled anarchists targeted the election campaign kiosk of Athens mayor candidate Costas Bakoyannis in a vandal attack late Tuesday.
The assailants, who were shouting slogans in favor of jailed November 17 terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas, splashed paint and spray-painted anarchist symbols on the kiosk in front of the Old Parliament near Syntagma Square.
