Three arrested for blackmailing man over compromising video

Four Bulgarian nationals have been arrested in Thessaloniki on suspicion of blackmailing a 55-year-old man.

The four, and one more suspect who remains at large, are suspected of recording their victim having sex with a 24-year-old woman and then threatening to post the video on the Internet if he did not pay them off.

The suspects, who include the woman in question, were arrested after the unnamed man agreed to give them 3,000 euros.
