Diaspora

tsanis filippos dead

All Greeks, in every corner of the world, have been shocked, grieved and appalled by the cowardly and brutal murder of 20-year-old Filippos Tsanis, our expatriate in Germany, by a group of 10 Syrian immigrants who attacked him and beat him to death with kicks. According to testimonies, the group of Syrians killed young Filippos because he was wearing a cross!
