Greek Prime Minister Vows To Rein in Xenophobic Party in Wake of Rapper's Murder

Greece's prime minister has vowed to reign in the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party after one of the group's members murdered a prominent anti-fascist singer, sparking national outrage.

Popular hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas was fatally stabbed in the working-class Athens district of Keratsini by a 45-year-old truck driver who allegedly confessed he was affiliated with the Golden Dawn.

The death of Fyssas, 34, who wrote music under the name Killah P, has sparked fresh calls for investigations into the organisations activities.
