BRUSSELS: Greek police say they have arrested three migrants allegedly responsible for a fatal mugging in which a man fell to his death from a cliff on a hill popular with tourists in central Athens earlier this month.
A police statement says two Pakistanis aged 17 and 28 were detained Thursday at Idomeni, on the border with Macedonia, which they were allegedly planning to cross illegally.
The third man, a 25-year-old Iraqi, was arrested in Athens. The knifepoint mugging took place on the Hill of Philopappos, opposite the Acropolis, on Aug. 15. It is unclear whether the victim, a 25-year-old Greek studying oversees who was there with a Portuguese friend, was pushed off the cliff or fell trying to avoid the muggers.
