Athens: Authorities have arrested
four suspected Greek militants after seizing weapons,
ammunition, and computer hard-drives from suspected safe
houses in Athens.

The four men were arrested during the raids late last
night, and have been charged with participation in an arson
attack last year, based on outstanding arrest warrants.

Police said today they discovered a handgun, an
automatic rifle, along with 220 bullets.

Attacks by militant groups escalated into deadly
violence following massive riots in 2008 over the police`s
fatal shooting of a teenage boy.

On Monday, suspected members of armed anarchist group
Conspiracy Nuclei of Fire go on trial on terrorism charges.

The group is linked to a spate of parcel bombings in November.
