Greece says no risk of political instability after Golden Dawn arrests

ATHENS, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Greece's finance minister played down the risk of political instability after police arrested the leader of the far-right Golden Dawn party, two of its lawmakers and party members on Saturday.

"There is no risk of destabilisation," Yannis Stournaras told reporters after a meeting in which Prime Minister Antonis Samaras briefed Greece's European Union and International Monetary Fund lenders on the crackdown against the party.
