  • [01] Injured bomber reportedly linked to 'November 17'

    01/07/2002 21:21:04

    Greek police have apparently linked a botched terrorist strike in Piraeus Saturday evening and the apprehension of the suspected bomber injured in the blast to the notorious ?November 17? group.

    According to reports, the evidence collected so far point to the elusive terrorist group, while the head of Greece's police force (EL.AS) revealed earlier on Monday during a nationally televised briefing that a revolver found near the injured body of Savvas Xiros, 40, late Saturday evening was taken from a policeman killed during a 1984 Christmas Eve robbery in central Athens.

    Greek stocks ended Monday's session lower in subdued turnover in the Athens Stock Exchange with investors seemingly shifting their attention towards their summer holidays.

    The general index fell 0.84 percent to end at 2,218.98 points, with turnover an extremely low 57.4 million euros, a new low for the year.

    The IT sector was the only one to score gains (up 0.27 percent), while the Insurance, Textile and Retail sectors suffered the heaviest percentage losses of the day (3.07 percet, 1.88 percent and 1.71 percent, respectively).

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended 0.97 percent lower, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index eased 0.82 percent and the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 index dropped 1.44 percent.

    Broadly, decliners led advancers by 237 to 69 with another 46 issues unchanged.
