Greek au­thor­i­ties have is­sued in­ter­na­tional war­rants for the ar­rest of two sus­pects be­lieved to be be­hind the killing of a 47-year-old priest, east of Athens, last month. The vic­tim was found dead in a pool of blood at his home in Ger­akas on Fe­bru­ary 13. Both sus­pects are Pak­istani na­tion­als, aged 28 and 33, au­thor­i­ties said. In­ves­ti­ga­tors traced the sus­pects via Facebook, which they are al­leged to have used to ex­change mes­sages af­ter the in­ci­dent. The two had trav­eled from Crete to Athens on the day of the in­ci­dent and had been due to meet with the priest for ad­vice about se­cur­ing le­gal res­i­dence in Greece. The pair, who are be­lieved to have fled for Pak­istan af­ter the killing, face charges of mur­der and rob­bery.
