Golden Dawn leader appears in court

The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party has appeared in court charged with forming a criminal organisation, following his arrest on Saturday.

Nikolaos Michaloliakos, three more MPs and 13 others were detained after the killing of a left-wing activist and musician, Pavlos Fyssas, by an alleged party member earlier this month.

The BBC's Mark Lowen, reporting from Athens, says the move against Golden Dawn is "unprecedented".
