    Police suspect 4 people - three men, one young woman- arrested in anti-terrorism raids on Wednesday of belonging to guerilla group Fire Conspiracy Cells and linked to Wednesday's attack outside the home of PASOK member Louka Katselis. During their raids in Halandri and Galatsi hideouts police found a time-bomb in a pot, similar to the one used in the latest attack, timers, explosive materials, mobile phones, printed material, which were confiscated. The four suspects will appear before a prosecutor.

    The regions of the hideouts remains cordoned off and investigations continue to find fingerprints and DNA of other members of the group.

    Police found a time bomb similar to the one used on Wednesday's attack outside the apartment of PASOK economic representative Louka Katselis in the Halandri hideout while a gun, large number of cartridges, 3.800 euros, explosive devices' assembly tools and computers.

    The four suspects refused to give their fingerprints and denied to answer to police questions.

    Police are examining all evidence collected in previous attacks and compating them with time bombs found in the two hideouts.

    Based on the similarities of explosive mechanisms, police believe that the suspects are linked with some 60 attacks, if they are indeed members of the Fire Conspiracy Cells. Police also believe that evidence so far may lead to location of members of terrorist organizations ‚Revolutionary Struggle‚ and ‚Revolutionary Sect‚.

    "It's a very big success for Greek police," Deputy Interior Minister Christos Markogiannakis said. He also said that investigation continues to find further evidence. He also expressed optimism about the arrest of other members of terrorist organizations.
