Urban guerrilla group claims responsibility for Berlin attack

Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, an urban guerrilla group that has seen a number of its members jailed, has claimed responsibility for an arson attack in the early hours of Wednesday on the car of Greek consul in Berlin, Aris Radiopoulos.

No one was injured in the attack, which destroyed the Greek envoy's car and another vehicle, both of which were parked in front of his residence.

“We want nothing less than the destruction of the beast that keeps the system alive,” the group said in a German-language proclamation that was posted on Germany's indymedia site (linksunten.indymedia.org).

The group also expressed solidarity with hunger strikers in Greek prisons protesting plans for maximum security cells.

Inmates suspended their action on Wednesday.
