Greek Police Arrest Terror Suspects

Greek police said today they had arrested three leading members of a homegrown terror group responsible for a spree of attacks last year, including a mail bomb campaign that spilled into neighboring European states.
The three suspects — all men between the ages of 24 and 32 — had been wanted for almost a year, since a crackdown on the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, a mob of militant anti-capitalists who have evaded police since 2008.
The suspects were arrested in a predawn dragnet launched in Volos, Greece, before swooping 200 miles (326 kilometers) south to Athens. In all, six terror suspects — five men and a 27-year-old woman — were arrested in a rash of raids that turned up a stash of weapons, ammunition, and even wigs and police uniforms.
Authorities said “hit notes” were also found in the Volos safe house where Giorgos Nikolopoulos, 25, Bolano Ntamiano, 24, and Christos Tsakalos, 32, were believed to be preparing a bank heist to fund the operation of their group, commonly known by its Greek acronym, SPF.
