  • [01] Serres farmers to abandon attempt at blocking border crossing

    (-PA) -- Farm union representatives in the northern Greece prefecture of Serres on Sunday said they would remove tractors and other machinery from the sides of a major highway heading to the Greek-Bulgarian frontier and the Promahonas border post, as efforts over the past week to block the border crossing -- in order to press for various demands -- proved futile.

    Several farmers were arrested last week for trying to reach the border post with farm machinery, ostensibly to block the crossing. They had been blocked at the 26th kilometre of the Serres-Promahonas highway by police units.

    [02] Lebanese national ID'd in Italian press report to terror group arrested

    (-PA) -- A Lebanese-Palestinian man identified in an Italian press report a day earlier as a member of the terror-linked group -- "Fatah al Islam" -- was arrested in Athens on Sunday evening.

    According to a statement by Greek police (EL.AS), Ghaleb Taleb was arrested along with another man following a lengthy surveillance operation. The arrest by intelligence and anti-terrorism personnel followed a report in the Italian mass daily "Corriere della Sera", with authorities reportedly acting before the suspect could flee.

    Additionally, another man the newspaper claimed as Taleb's predecessor in Greece, Mohammed Mousa, has also been arrested. Both men face deportation.

    The Italian daily on Saturday charged that Taleb was in Greece to coordinate some type of attack in Greece or another European country. (-PA)
