Police release name, photos of woman wanted in connection with Xeros

Police released on Saturday the name and photographs of the young woman who allegedly aided November 17 terrorist Christodoulos Xeros before he was recaptured earlier this month.

The woman was identified as 22-year-old Angeliki Spyropoulou.

Police published 33 photos of the suspect, one from her identity card and the rest from CCTV cameras.

The latter images were taken this month, when Spyropoulou allegedly visited a chemical wholesaler in Nea Halkidona, northern Athens, to purchase a large quantity of nitromethane, a fuel which is used in motorsports and hobbies but can also be combined with other chemicals to construct bombs.

The woman claimed she wanted the chemical for her uncle who builds toy models. Employees refused to serve her.
