Members of the anarchist group Rouvikonas (Rubicon) vandalised the US Embassy in Athens on Monday morning, covering parts of the embassy building in red paint in protest.
According to reports, the incident took place at around 03:30 local time (02:30 GMT).
Greek police detained eight people suspected of vandalising the official building.
In an internet post, Rouvikonas claimed that they had made the attack in protest against "American imperialism" as well as Greece's name change deal with neighboring Macedonia. They also mentioned the recent US decision to withdraw the country's troops from Syria, saying that this move would allow "the semi-fascist state of Turkey" to attack the Kurdish forces.
