ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek authorities say a man with ties to an extreme right party accused of fatally stabbing an anti-fascist rapper has been jailed after testifying to an examining magistrate and a prosecutor.
Police say the 45-year-old suspect, whose name hasn't been officially released, but who has been repeatedly identified in Greek media, has said he was being attacked by a group of people and acting in self-defense when he stabbed 34-year-old Pavlos Fyssas in the chest Wednesday.
Police officials said Saturday the suspect has acknowledged "loose" ties with extreme right party Golden Dawn, saying he has only helped in distributing food to the poor.
Authorities are examining cellphone records to find whether the attack on Fyssas was coordinated. The suspect denies having talked to any Golden Dawn officials before the attack.
