Alleged accomplices of N17’s Xeros caught in Athens

One man was arrested and another detained in Athens on Saturday in connection to the November 17 terrorist Christodoulos Xeros, who was recaptured in January after a year on the run.

According to police sources, officers matched fingerprints found at two properties used by Xeros while he was on the run and two parcel bombs linked to the terrorist to the man who was arrested. The suspect who was detained seems to have had a less direct role in Xeros’s actions.

Xeros was allegedly planning with others to help members of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group escape from Korydallos Prison when he was arrested southeast of Athens.
