37 year old Cheikh Ndiaye dies on metro track after being chased by municipal police in Athens


In the early hours (approximately 01:00) of February 2nd, Cheikh Ndiaye died on the metro tracks at the Thiseio stop of the ISAP line in Athens. Cheikh, a street vendor from Senegal, was being chased by municipal police when he landed in the tracks. It is still unclear whether he was pushed to his death or whether he lost his balance and fell.

Moments later, friends of Cheikh gathered at the point of his death only to be dispersed and chased by riot police who arrived at the spot. Meanwhile, as reported on Athens Indymedia, the metro carriages were playing an announcement that the metro route was being altered due to an “obstacle” in the tracks.
