Makeshift weapons seized at Ritsona migrant camp


Police on Tuesday arrested two migrants and detained a third for questioning after confiscating four homemade bats – two wooden and two metal – as well as six homemade swords from container homes at the migrant reception facility in Ritsona, north of Athens.

The third suspect is believed to have used a saw to fashion blades ranging in length from 56 to 64 centimeters.

Two of the suspects were to face a prosecutor on charges of illegal weapons possession while the third was being questioned.
