Artifact arrest.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Greek Po­lice (ELAS) have helped their Egyp­tian coun­ter­parts to arrest a 30-year-old Libyan man be­lieved to be in­volved in the il­le­gal trade of an­cient ar­ti­facts, sources at ELAS re­vealed over the week­end. Act­ing on a tip-off from a Greek na­tional who claimed to have been ap­proached by the sus­pect via Face­book over the pro­posed sale of an artifact, Greek of­fi­cers sought to lure the 30-year-old to Athens by cre­at­ing a fake ac­count of a would-be buyer. After the sus­pect failed to se­cure a visa to visit Greece, the meet­ing was trans­ferred to Alexan­dria, where Egyp­tian of­fi­cers ar­rested the sus­pect fol­low­ing a tip-off by their Greek coun­ter­parts.
