Greek terrorist trial postponed due to strike
Lawyers strike forces postponement of Greek domestic terrorist suspects
By The Associated Press

ATHENS, Greece (AP) ' Judicial authorities have postponed a trial of eight Greek terrorist suspects until later this month, as lawyers were participating in a 24-hour civil servants' strike.

A court in the maximum security Korydallos prison postponed Wednesday's trial of suspected Revolutionary Struggle members until Oct. 24.

The group first appeared in 2003 and is best known for firing a rocket-propelled grenade into the U.S. Embassy in Athens in 2007. They have also claimed responsibility for bombing the Athens Stock Exchange and for a gun attack that severely wounded a riot policeman in 2009.

Three of the eight suspects ' Nikos Maziotis, Panayiota Roupa and Kostas Gournas ' are being held in pre-trial detention and have admitted to being members of the group. They have claimed to be political prisoners.
