ATHENS, Nov 16 (Reuters) – Scuffles broke out on Tuesday between Muslim Greeks and a television crew filming an episode of a popular series near a mosque in northeastern Greece, police said.
They said about 400 Muslim Greeks in the village of Echinos, angered by the presence of actresses not wearing head scarves near the entry of the mosque, gathered around the television crew demanding they leave.
“One vehicle of the film crew was damaged by the crowd but there were no injuries,” a police official said.
The director of the series “Archipelago”, which touches on the sensitive relations between archrivals Greeks and Turks, said the crew had sought shelter from the rain in the grounds of the mosque compound and had no plans to enter the mosque itself.
“We never entered the mosque and did not want to provoke the Muslim community,” director Stratos Markidis said.
But a 17-year-old boy alerted local Muslims that the crew were planning to film inside, police said.
“The crew wanted to film inside our mosque with women actresses wearing no headscarf,” a local man told reporters.
