Prosecutor says six guilty in trial of terror group

A prosecutor recommended Thursday that six of 17 suspected members of Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire be found guilty of being members of the urban guerrilla group.

Appeals court prosecutor Sotiris Bagias also recommended that one suspect be acquitted as the only evidence against him was that some of the other suspects had slept at his house. The judicial official added that the court cannot rule on the charges against the other suspects because they have already been prosecuted for terrorist activities and a judgment in that case is pending.

The group is best known for its bloodless bombing campaign between 2009 and 2011, which involved explosives being placed in pressure cookers or parcels sent by post.
