One of the perpetrators of the bloody attacks in Paris on 13 November, Abdelhamid Abaud, maintained hiding places in two flats in the Athens suburbs of Sepolia and Pangrati. As early as January 2015 the anti-terrorism service in co-operation with the Belgian secret services detected in two flats DNA that matched no sample in the local database. Another examination had been made at the request of the French police, which has established that the samples match the DNA of the terrorist from Paris.

The newspaper Kathimerini reports that the first flat was located on 9 Asteropis Street in Pangrati, which the police searched on 17 January. They arrested two foreigners, one of whom was extradited to Belgium. He had a mobile phone from which the authorities intercepted conversations with a group of Islamists in Belgium. Two days later, the police searched the second flat in Sepolia but its occupants managed to escape. In their haste, however, they left fingerprints, and two fake French driving licences.
