    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, SEPTEMBER 18 - Police arrested a 45-year-old man with links to the extreme right party Golden Dawn after an argument that started over a soccer match on Tuesday night led to a 34-year-old man, known to be a leftist, being stabbed to death in the southern Athens neighborhood of Amfiali. The suspected attacker was arrested near the scene of the stabbing.

    According to police, as Kathimerini online reports, an argument broke out at a cafeteria between the two men over the Olympiakos vs Paris St Germain Champions League match. The 45-year-old left but then attacked the victim, with the help of about 15 others, as the 34-year-old left the cafe. Reports suggest that the victim told police the name of his attacker shortly before he lost consciousness and was taken to the hospital. The 34-year-old, identified as Pavlos Fyssas, died shortly after arriving at Tzanneio Hospital. Fyssas had been part of the Greek hip-hop scene since 1997 and performed under the name Killah P.

    Early today the police raided the offices of extreme right Golden Dawn situated on Mesogeion Avenue and at the Larissis Station in Athens. Police sources suggested that searches would be conducted in other Golden Dawn offices in the Greek capital.
