  • [01] DNA results of blood from Dafni shoutout released

    ANA-MPA/A DNA examination of blood stains from a shootout with police last week in the Dafni district of Athens in which a 35-year-old gunman was killed has positively indentified the blood as belonging to the dead gunman, but does not identify with genetic material taken from the sites of recent terrorist attacks, police announced on Monday.

    Police said the blood belongs to 35-year-old biologist Lambros Fountas, and not to his accomplice at the time of the shootout, as initially believed by police, who suspect that the accomplice was also injured.
