Police arrest Coast Guard operators, ex-terrorist in anti-crime sweep
Police say that they have found explosives on Coast Guard Special Forces operators after raiding their homes, and have also arrested a former leader of an anarchist terrorist group as part of the same operation.
Kathimerini understands that the operation was targeting organized crime and not terrorist activity.
A senior police officer told Kathimerini that findings included explosives, slow-burning fuses, bullets and flash-bang grenades.
The former member of the Conspiracy of Fire Cells (alternately translated as Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei) terrorist group was arrested for being in possession of a gun and bullets. The arrested person, whose name was not released, has already served a jail term for terrorist activity.
