In what appears to be the latest in a string of racist attacks in the Cretan prefecture of Hania, an unidentified assailant yesterday used a wooden club to threaten a foreign immigrant working as a guard at a local quarry before setting fire to his guard box, causing him significant burns. According to the migrant’s account of the incident, the masked assailant drove up to the quarry’s entrance. The perpetrator is then said to have threatened the migrant with the club and set fire to the guard’s box. Before fleeing, the assailant torched the migrant worker’s scooter that had been parked nearby.
