Three suspected anarchists arrested in Greece
font size    

Greek police on Tuesday announced the arrest of three suspected members of the urban guerrilla group "Anti-Fascist Action", believed to be responsible for a series of arsonist attacks since 1994.

The three were caught in the early hours of Monday morning at Omonia, downtown Athens, after a man set alight a National Bank of Greece ATM.

The fire was set by a 32-year-old man on a moped, who doused the ATM with a flammable liquid and set it on fire. Police investigating the attack caught up with the three, aged 27, 30 and 31, in a delivery van in Omonia and they admitted their involvement under questioning. Two of the three arrested also have previous arrests for arson and other charges.

A search is on for the man that caused the ATM fire and the woman owner of the moped he was riding.

The fingerprints of the 32-year-old were also found on a canister of flammable liquid used in a fire set at the Royalist National Organization two days before.

Responsibility for both attacks was claimed by "Anti-Fascist Action" in a phone call to the newspaper "Eleftherotypia".

The same group has also claimed responsibility for a series of other arsonist attacks in the past 10 years.
