  • [01] Car sought in terrorism investigation found burned

    A-MPA/A stolen car sought by police before an organised swoop on suspected terrorist safehouses two weeks ago was found burned at dawn Sunday in the Patissia district of Athens, it was made known on Monday.

    The blue 'Renault' car, according to police sources, had been used by suspected Revolutionary Struggle' terrorist group member Nikos Maziotis, who was arrested in the April 11 dawn operation by counter-terrorism police along with five other suspects.

    All six have been jailed pending trial.

    Police believe the car was abandoned 1-2 days before the swoop operation.

    Greece's horizontal bar champion Vlasis Maras on Sunday became the first athlete in the world to win five gold medals in any apparatus in the European Gymnastics Championships, as he took the gold again at the 2010 Championships in Birmingham.

    Maras took the gold in the Senior Mens High (or Horizontal) Bar final, with Epke Zonderland from the Netherlands taking the silver, and the bronze shared by Philipp Boy and Fabian Manguechen, both from Germany.

    Greece's Vassilios Tsolakidis also brought home the silver medal in the Senior Mens Parallel Bars, while Eleftherios Kosmidis also took the silver in the Floor final.
