Greek police arrest fugitive Marxist guerrilla

Greek police on Saturday arrested Christodoulos Xiros, a fugitive member of the Marxist guerrilla group November 17 who had absconded while on leave from prison almost a year ago.
Christodoulos Xiros, 56, is serving multiple life terms for his role in Greece’s most lethal guerrilla group, which killed Greek, U.S. and British diplomats before being dismantled in 2002. A police official said he had been arrested in Anavissos, a coastal town outside Athens.
While on the run, Xiros had appeared in a video vowing to avenge the pain ordinary Greeks have suffered under international bailout programmes. A 1 million euro ($1.2 million) reward had been offered for his capture.
