DNA found on weapons linked to terror suspect

The DNA of a 29-year-old man arrested on Wednesday in Corinth on suspicion of being a member of the urban guerrilla group Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire has been found on weapons discovered last November on the grounds of a complex housing university students in Zografou, eastern Athens, police said on Thursday.

The DNA of the unnamed suspect was found on two .357 Magnum revolvers, two pistols and an Uzi-type submachine gun that had been packed into a box wrapped in a plastic bag and buried, police spokesman Christos Manouras said.

Members of the police’s counterterrorism squad were on Thursday conducting inquiries in a village in Karditsa, central Greece, which the 29-year-old is said to have visited frequently.
