Greece: 9 arrests in urban Anti-Goverment terror group swoop
Suspicion has focused on the so-called “Revolutionaries’ Sect” group, one of a handful of self-styled anti-state urban guerrilla cells that mostly operate in central Athens.
The two suspects were allegedly carrying a knapsack with weapons when arrested.
Besides the Nea Smyrni (Kessarias street) hideout, another apartment in the port city of Piraeus (Praxitelous street) also yielded a cache of weapons, including handguns and hand grenades.
Yet another residence in the western Greece city of Agrinio was been pinpointed and being searched with micro-cameras before authorities enter, and a fourth hideout was later discovered in the Athens district of Kallithea where, according to police sources, weapons and printed material were found.
