A court in southern Greece has convicted two employees at a strawberry farm for shooting and wounding 28 migrant workers protesting unpaid wages, but the farm's owner and head foreman were cleared.  

The shotgun attack occurred last year in Manolada, 260 kilometres southwest of Athens, where mostly Bangladeshi migrants work, and drew international attention to the often appalling conditions facing migrant laborers at Greek farms.

The court in the city of Patras sentenced one man to 14 years and seven months in prison and the other to eight years and seven months.

Both were convicted of aggravated assault and illegal use of firearms, and both were freed pending their appeal.
