Italian anarchist held in Greece for bank heist

Italian anarchist held in Greece for bank heist

Greek police say a prominent Italian anarchist writer and activist in his seventies has been arrested for allegedly robbing a bank with a Greek accomplice.
A police spokesman says Alfredo Maria Bonanno was arrested Thursday near the central town of Trikala, where two men earlier stole ⁈ ($68,000) at gunpoint from a Piraeus Bank branch.
Bonanno, 72, is considered a major influence on the international insurrectionist anarchist movement, with a series of essays such as "Armed Joy."
Police also arrested Greek national and fellow anarchist Christos Stratigopoulos, 46, shortly after the heist.
The arrests were announced Friday.
