The suspects, who are ages 21 to 30 and include a woman, were caught after police raids on Saturday in the capital, the port of Piraeus, the western town of Agrinio and the island of Crete, police Chief Lefteris Oikonomou said.
Two of the suspects already were wanted by police in connection with a radical anarchist group, Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei, that was behind a parcel bomb campaign against European leaders and embassies uncovered last month.
5 suspected pirates face hijacking charges
THE HAGUE | Dutch prosecutors say they have launched a criminal investigation into five suspected Somali pirates accused of hijacking a South African yacht and plan to prosecute them in the Netherlands.
A national prosecutor’s office statement said the five men are being held on the navy ship Amsterdam, whose crew arrested them last month.
The men, ages 20 to 30, were being transported to the Netherlands on Sunday.
The yacht Choizil was hijacked and off the coast of Tanzania and later run aground by pirates on Nov. 7.
A South African husband and wife were taken to land and are still being held hostage, but the skipper remained on board and was later picked up by the French navy.
