Greece orders wiretap on neo-Nazis amid violence

The Greek intelligence service is tapping the communications of Golden Dawn, the far-right political party suspected of having links to the murder of a left-wing hip hop artist, it is claimed.

In a turbulent 24 hours for Greece, anti-fascist protests turned violent, an army website demanded the resignation of the government, and an intelligence service official admitted it was monitoring the communications of a neo-Nazi political party.

The official said the wiretap surveillance of Golden Dawn was authorised to prove alleged complicity in crimes following the murder of an anti-fascist rapper.
