ATHENS, Greece — Greek police arrested at least 10 members of an anarchist group who were protesting at the check-in desk of El Al airlines at Athens airport.

The protesters chanted “No to the agents of the Mossad,” at passengers waiting to check in on Wednesday, the Kathimerini news website reported.

The anarchist group, known as Rouvikanos, said in an online statement that its members were protesting an incident last week in which a Colombian man was allegedly assaulted by El Al security staff for acting suspiciously at the airport.

Last week members of the group tried to storm the Mexican Embassy in Athens to protest human rights violations in Mexico.
