Car is link to terror suspect

A car found burned in Lambrini, near central Athens, on Sunday had been used by suspected members of Revolutionary Struggle, including the gang’s assumed ringleader Nikos Maziotis, currently in custody along with five other suspects, and is believed to have been stolen from Thessaloniki by another suspected member of the terror group still at large, police said. Counterterrorism officers are reportedly moving in on this seventh suspect, believed to be linked to the theft of the vehicle in the northern city in August 2007. Examination of the remains of the blue Renault found in Lambrini, north of central Athens, turned up a wealth of evidence: a sledgehammer, a bottle of flammable yellow liquid, several clocks with the remains of duct tape and the license plate of a stolen motorcycle. The license plate on the car itself also had been stolen from another car, police said.
