ATHENS – After failed negotiations over their demands, dozens of Syrian refugees who had been protesting at Syntagma Square across from Parliament were removed early on Dec. 15.

Police escorted the Syrians to the Athens Aliens Bureau at around 3 a.m. Authorities said there was no resistance from the refugees who had been demanding to be allowed to leave the country to seek asylum in other countries. A number had been on a hunger strike.

Interior Ministry General Secretary Angelos Syrigos said there had been an agreement that the Syrians would leave the square by the night of Dec. 14 but over the weekend more protesters arrived, prompting the police to intervene.

Around 50 of some 330 protesting Syrians were moved to a City of Athens shelter.
