6 From Leftist Greek Terror Group Get Multiple Life Sentences

A Greek court sentenced the leader, the chief assassin and four other members of the November 17 terrorist organization to multiple life sentences on Wednesday for a string of killings, rocket attacks, bombings and bank robberies since 1975. Closing a nine-month trial in a prison courtroom, a special antiterrorist court sentenced Alexandros Yiotopoulos, a Paris-born academic who acted as the terror group’s spiritual leader, to 21 life terms. Dimitris Koufodinas received 13 life terms for gunning down several of the terror group’s 23 victims, including Britain’s top military official in Greece, Brig. Stephen Saunders, three years ago. Four other men received sentences ranging from one to 10 life terms in the Korydallos maximum security prison.
