Video: Iranian immigrant in Greece has ear bitten off in racist attack

<p>“Personally, I found no civilization, no love, in Europe” explained Said, a young immigrant from Iran who was racially attacked in Athens two months ago.</p> <p>Said was walking in the centre of the Greek capital, in the area of Metaxourgion, when three men in black approached and started beating him.</p> <p>“They beat me harsh. One of them grabbed me from behind, held my neck with his hand and bit my ear off. I bled and saw my ear fall on the ground” Said described.</p> <p>“I want to say something to all those immigrants leaving their countries… It may be better to stay in your country than to leave,” Said added.</p> <p>Now, the young Iranian has found shelter with the organisation Doctors of the World.</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/tGBsU8k0Rzc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p>
