Are Greek police 'targeting' migrants?

The Greek government is being strongly condemned for its treatment of immigrants and asylum seekers.

An Amnesty International report links the rise in support for the extreme right-wing Golden Dawn Party with attacks on foreigners.

The Greek government estimates there are now more than a million illegal immigrants in the country, about one in 10 of the population.

The World at One programme's reporter Andrew Bomford has found that while the police make daily high profile arrests to try to deal with the problem, they are accused by human rights groups of mistreating migrants.
