Urban guerrillas blast Xeros over failed escape

Members of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group on Tuesday slammed November 17 terrorist Christodoulos Xeros, who was preparing to help them escape until he was caught last month, and labeled him a “disgusting, subhuman fantasist.”

Conspiracy members helped Xeros escape while he was on furlough but the two sides appear to have fallen out over the execution of the planned use of a car laden with 170 kilos of explosives to blow a hole in the wall at Korydallos Prison, facilitating their escape.

Xeros is alleged to have tried to take on a central role in the escape plot, against the urban guerrilla leaders’ wishes.

In their statement, the Conspiracy members also claim that accomplices had conducted test explosions in preparation for the escape.
