John Psaropoulos reports from Athens that Greek police have dealt what could be a fatal series of blows to the November 17th Terrorist Group. For nearly three decades, the group, named to commemorate a student uprising, carried out nearly two dozen assassinations with impunity. Then, last month, with the 2004 Olympic games in Athens looming, Greek police finally arrested their first November 17th suspect. Fifteen alleged members have now been taken into custody. The families of the terrorists' victims are wondering why it took the authorities so long to crack the case.
