You all remember the shocking pictures of a policeman on fire, during the riots at the general strike protests in Athens. Now a video taken on February 23, 2011 and uploaded in CNN “ireporter section” and later on YouTube shows what preceded the hurling of a petrol bomb agianst the policeman.
What this video shows is equaly shocking and dramatic: As protesters run over Syntagma Square under the sound of stun granades, a policeman runs over a running protester with his motorcycle. The policeman keeps driving. The other protesters climbing the stairs turn shocked their heads and scream. A second motorcycle with two policemen slides on the square marbles, people scream and a man shouts furiously “Kill him! Kill him!” . Within seconds somebody hurls a mototov cocktail at the fallen policeman who is immediately set on fire.
Video: the incident starts at 0:35 sec.
