Group claims December Athens embassy attack

The anarchist People’s Fighter Group claims responsibility for the December drive-by shooting at Israel’s Embassy in Greece, Israel Radio reports.

The Greek group makes the announcement via a sign left near a garbage receptacle in Athens.

Days after the attack, Greek police said they suspected the group.

A gunman riding on the back of a motorcycle raked the embassy with at least 54 rounds from a Kalashnikov rifle, police said, as it passed the embassy, which sits on the corner of a busy road in the affluent northern suburbs of the Greek capital.

No one was injured in the attack.
