Greek terror group claims journalist killing
ATHENS, Greece — Police in Greece say a terrorist group which calls itself the Sect of Revolutionaries has claimed responsibility for gunning down a journalist outside his home in a pre-dawn killing last week.
Sokratis Giolias was shot more than a dozen times outside his Athens home on July 19. Police had already matched bullets from handguns used in the attack to the Greek militant group, which had previously used the weapons in the killing of an anti-terrorist police officer and a shooting attack outside a private television station.
Authorities said an Athens newspaper received a statement from the group Tuesday, claiming Giolias’ murder. Details of the statement were not available, but the newspaper said it contained threats against well-known Greek journalists and publishers.
