Arson Attack on Pakistani Grocery Store

shop arson

There is next to nothing in the press about the arson attack on a Pakistani grocery store in Crete on Wednesday night. From what I can gather from bits and pieces, a Molotov was thrown into the building and the store was gutted by flames. People in the neighborhood heard explosions and one of them videoed the attack. It has not been established whether this was a racist attack but we can be pretty sure that it was. A targeted attack on a shop owned by a Pakistani man.

I have serious doubts whether there will even be a proper investigation. The police are reluctant to call anything a racist attack; sometimes refusing to gather evidence and sometimes “discouraging” a person from filing a report by charging a “fee”.
If I manage to find out anything more, I’ll post it here as always.
