Suspected anarchist bombers face trial in Greece


The trial of 13 suspected members of a Greek anarchist group that has staged bomb attacks against state property and foreign embassies has opened in Athens.

Two of the accused have admitted involvement in the Fire Conspiracy Cells group, while four are still at large and will be tried in absentia.

The group sent a wave of parcel bombs to foreign missions in Athens last November and a number of European leaders abroad.

The trial will go ahead without a jury and be presided over by three judges.

Last December, the same group claimed responsibility for a powerful blast outside a court in Athens.

On Friday five other alleged anarchists, including a German woman, were arrested for planning attacks to coincide with today’s trial.
