Another terrorist hit feared

Officers heading the investigation into the missile attack on the US Embassy told Sunday’s Kathimerini they fear that the terrorists behind the strike are preparing another, possibly more spectacular, assault. Police believe that the lack so far of any proclamation claiming responsibility for the strike makes it more likely that the same organization – thought to be Revolutionary Struggle – is lining up another hit. The investigation has failed to yield any concrete results yet, but officers told Sunday’s Kathimerini they believe the Greek terrorists involved in the attack worked with a militant group abroad to smuggle the missile used in the embassy strike into Greece. There has been no evidence so far to suggest that arms smugglers were involved in bringing the Chinese-made RPG 7 to Greece. Police think the weapon may have been smuggled into the country about two years ago and then hidden by the terrorists, who wanted to make sure that the authorities were not onto them.
