Fake euro workshop raided

Police in Thessaloniki said on Thursday that they had raided a workshop counterfeiting euro coins in the southeastern outskirts of the northern port.

The workshop, which appears to have been chiefly producing fake two-euro coins, is the first of its kind discovered in Greece to date.

Officers arrested two brothers who are believed to have been running the counterfeiting operation as well as a 59-year-old suspected accomplice who is said to have both Greek and Bulgarian citizenship.
