Arson attack on Acropolis police station claimed in name of late urban guerrilla

An arson attack on Acropolis police precinct has been clamed in the name of Lambros Fountas, the member of the Revolutionary Struggle urban guerrilla group who was shot dead by police two years ago as he attempted to steal a car.

No specific group claimed the attack, which took place early on Sunday, but a statement online said that it had been carried out in remembrance of Fountas two years after his death.

The statement encouraged others to “take up arms.”

Nobody was injured in the attack, which caused substantial damage.
