The Greek anti-terrorism forces have found two hiding places of terrorists in the central Athens neighbourhood of Exarcheia and in Piraeus. The search in the two lodgings is still underway but the police stated that they were big stores of weapons. An arsenal of weapons - two Kalashnikovs, four F1 type hand grenades, three full magazines of bullets - two with 20 bullets and one with 6 bullets, two boxes of 7.62 millimetre bullets totalling 1,440 - was found in the flat on 4 Skilitsa Street in Exarcheia alone. 
    The riot forces have cordoned off the area around the building. The police announced they had evidence of a connection between the two hiding places and the robbery in Velveto near Kozani in northern Greece.

    Law enforcement officials do not exclude a connection with last night's attacks in Thessaloniki against the offices of prominent functionaries of the ruling New Democracy party. Makeshift bombs exploded with a difference of a few minutes in the political offices of Stavros Kalafatis, Deputy Minister of Environment, and deputies Costas Giulekas and George Orfanos. The explosions caused only material damage.
