Violent Greek Group Added To Terrorist Blacklist
America and the world continue to grow opposition in the form of terrorists. The Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, declared the Greek organization 'Sect of Revolutionaries' be put on the terrorism blacklist. The group claims responsibility for two killings as well as attacks on TV and police stations.
WASHINGTON – The U.S. terrorism blacklist has a new member: a Greek group that claims responsibility for two targeted killings.
The designation by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday bars Americans from doing business with the Sect of Revolutionaries and freezes any U.S. assets the organization may have.
The group has claimed responsibility for killing an anti-terrorism police officer and a journalist since emerging after 2008 riots that broke out when Greek police fatally shot a teenager. Both of the sect's victims were shot more than a dozen times. The group also took responsibility for attacks on police and a TV station.
"The organization's indiscriminate terrorist activities threaten the national security of the United States," the department said in a statement.
