Greece's parliament has voted to lift the immunity of four politicians from the far-right Golden Dawn party so they can stand
trial on public disturbance offences.

MPs on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly in favour of the action against Eleni Zaroulia, Ilias Panayiotaros, Ilias Kasidiaris and Efstathios Bouroukas to face trial for offences that are not directly related to an ongoing criminal investigation against the party.

The leader of the Neo-Nazi-rooted party and two other politicians were jailed in late September on charges of belonging to a criminal organisation, while three others were charged but released from custody.

Last week, two Golden Dawn members were shot dead outside party offices in Athens in an attack being investigated by the police's anti-terrorism division. Police have made no arrests.
