Three members of the gang – two Greeks aged 18 and 22 and one foreign national, 20 – were arrested at Athens Airport on Sunday afternoon.

Two foreign nationals who were trying to board a flight with fake documents were also arrested.

Two Greek women were also arrested later in the day after police raided a house in Athens in connection with the case.
