Po­lice probe group which claimed French Em­bassy hit

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a guer­rilla group call­ing it­self the Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Self-De­fense after it claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for a hand grenade at­tack on the French Em­bassy last week and shots fired at the Mex­i­can Em­bassy in Au­gust.

In a state­ment posted on an an­ar­chist web­site late on Mon­day, the group said it at­tacked the French Em­bassy on Novem­ber 10, which lightly in­jured a po­lice guard, to protest against the French po­lice’s crack­down on mi- grants at a large camp in Calais and in sol­i­dar­ity with Ge­orges Ibrahim Ab­dal­lah, a Le­banese mil­i­tant who is serving a 32-year jail term in France for the mur­der of two diplo­mats in the 1980s.

The group, which has also claimed an at­tack on PA­SOK’s Athens head­quar­ters in 2014, said it aimed to “at­tack the state oli­garchy, the dic­ta­tor­ship of cap­i­tal and its armed guards.” De­spite some fac­tual er­rors in the procla­ma­tion, po­lice be­lieve it is gen­uine and was com­posed in a hurry.

Rays of sun­shine break through the clouds above the city of Trikala in cen­tral Greece yes­ter­day. A stint of un­sea­son­ably good weather over the past week was in­ter­rupted yes­ter­day with cloudi­ness and rain in parts of the coun­try. The cle­ment weather is to con­tinue though tem­per­a­tures will drop in the north.
