Greece halts mail, hunts for suspects

Authorities in Greece are screening thousands of parcels after halting all outgoing mail deliveries abroad to try and stop a spate of parcel bombs blamed on Greek militants that have targeted embassies in Athens and European leaders and institutions abroad.
The 48-hour ban took effect Wednesday after mail bombs reached the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and halted flights for hours at an Italian airport where a package addressed to Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi caught fire.
Police are questioning two suspects arrested Monday in connection with the bombings and released the photographs of five other suspects believed to be associated with them. Most of the suspects are in their early 20s.
