Greek police say they have arrested six people suspected of being members of the Revolutionary Struggle terrorist group. Police spokesman Athanasios Kokalakis says, "The six arrested individuals will appear before a prosecutor to be charged with membership in Revolutionary Struggle."

The six, five men and a woman, all in their 30s, were detained Saturday. A computer seized in one of three houses searched in the Athens area contained proclamations regarding terrorist attacks. Police also found notes and bombmaking material.

Revolutionary Struggle has claimed responsibility for several attacks, including the shooting of a riot policeman last year and an anti-tank rocket strike against the U.S. Embassy in 2007.
