Scuffles broke out in Greece's second largest city between police and protesting Greek Cypriot students during the visit to the city of a far-right Turkish politician.


Devlet Bahçeli, head of Turkey's Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), visited Thessaloniki Thursday as part of a tour of northern Greece, where Greece's sizeable Muslim minority mainly lives. About 60 Greek Cypriots affiliated to a student movement stood outside the Turkish Consulate in Thessaloniki to protest, and scuffled with police who dispersed them using pepper spray.
