Large-scale anti-terror op in Athens – 9 detained

The Greek Anti-Terror Squad in Athens have already detained nine (9) persons in ongoing operations they are conducting in two central areas of the capital. According to an official announcement by the authorities, eight of the detained are men and one is a woman.

Sources say that none of the detainees is Greek, they are linked with Turkey’s Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C), a  Marxist-Leninist party ongoing since 1990 and are involved in planned terrorist actions abroad.

The detained people are also said to be linked with an older case involving RPG weapons found on a Greek island -most probably Oinousses, a very small island NE of Chios, in the northern Aegean Sea, only minutes away from the port city of Cesme and the Turkish shores…/IBNA
