Bal­lis­tics tests car­ried out on a large cache of weapons found on Wed­nes­day in a small build­ing used for stor­age pur­poses in Marathon, eastern At­tica, in­di­cated that they have not been used in any ter­ror­ist at­tacks or rob­beries, po­lice said yesterday. The raid turned up rocket-pro­pelled grenades, Kalash­nikov as­sault ri­fles and sub­ma­chine guns as well as seven stolen ve­hi­cles. A search ear­lier this week on a house in Mo­los, Fthi­otida, cen­tral Greece, also turned up a wealth of arms which sim­i­larly proved not to have been used in any crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties. Both the Fthi­otida and Marathon prop­er­ties have been linked to Gior­gos Pe­trakakos, an al­leged ter­ror­ist ar­rested in Vo­los last week and be­lieved to be an ac­com­plice of Nikos Mazi­o­tis, the leader of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Strug­gle guer­rilla group.
