--- Quote ---Army officers linked to more plots

Citizen Protection Ministry officials are not ruling out the possibility that two military pyrotechnicians who were arrested last week for their involvement in the case of a parcel-bomb that was sent to the president of the Thessaloniki Appeals Court on February 12 may be linked to other terrorist plots, such as the attempted attack on the police riot unit headquarters in Athens last December.

The two uniformed officers, along with eight other suspects – four of whom are currently serving time in prison – are accused of forming a terrorist organization.
