Greek militant group claims attacks on police

Police say the Greek militant group Revolutionary Struggle has claimed responsibility for recent attacks on police in Athens.
Police said Wednesday that the group sent a statement to the weekly Pontiki newspaper saying it carried out a Dec. 23 shooting attack on a riot police bus and a separate Jan. 5 shooting at police in which one officer was seriously wounded.
The attacks followed Greece's worst riots in decades. They were sparked by a fatal police shooting of a teenager last month.
Two years ago, the far-left Revolutionary Struggle fired a rocket-propelled grenade into the U.S. Embassy in Athens.
