Suspected violent robber wanted in Greece arrested in Cyprus

A 27-year-old Albanian believed to be a member of a ring of violent robbers who have carried out more than 60 armed raids in Greece was arrested in Cyprus on Tuesday, the Greek Police said on Thursday.

According to police, the gang is particularly dangerous.

During an attempt to steal a car from the Athens neighborhood of Kaisariani in June 2012, unidentified members of the racket shot and killed a 30-year-old man and seriously injured his brother.
