Greek police expect a new terrorist attack and are in red alert. Hundreds of policemen have abandoned their routine duties and set off the streets of Athens in an attempt to prevent the threat of new bloodshed. The police called the anniversary celebrations on November 17 on the occasion of the events at the Athens Polytechnic ‘hot potato’ as traditionally they are large and unruly, but they are expected to be even more eventful this year due to the strict measures of financial constraints. The police expect activities in early December, when will be marked the anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos – the 16-year-old student who died two years ago from a police bullet.

The impact of the 11 parcel bombs that were sent to various embassies in Athens and three right-wing politicians in Europe has not faded away yet. Although only one of the eleven dangerous parcels, the one for the German Chancellor Angela Merkel was powerful enough to cause trouble, the police are extremely concerned about the terrorists’ insolence and impudence. German team of professionals arrived in Athens to investigate together with the Greek authorities the circumstances connected with the explosive device parcel sending. According to ALTERA TV, 13 parcels were actually sent and now police are frantically searching to whom the other two were sent.

In this disturbance the Greek left terrorism has caused, two false bomb threats emptied the Athens metro stations within hours.

The two men that caused Greece to enter the world news over the past 48 hours, the senders of the parcel bombs – Panagiotis Argiru and Gerasimos Tsakalos – have to testify before the inquiry this morning. Officers defined them ‘hard nuts to crack’ since they both are very brazen and arrogant and refused any cooperation with judicial authorities as well as to give evidence or fingerprints.
