US calls on Greece to find, return Greek terrorist who vanished while on prison furlough

The U.S. is calling on the Greek government to find and return to prison a member of a terrorist organization, which is responsible for the deaths of five employees of the U.S. mission in Athens.

Christodoulos Xiros (Chris-toh-DOO'-los SEER-ross), a far-left terrorist gunman serving six life sentences, vanished while on New Year's leave from prison, prompting a nationwide manhunt.

Xiros was convicted in 2003, along with two of his brothers, of belonging to the November 17 terrorist group, which killed 23 people — including foreign diplomats, policemen and businessmen — between 1975 and 2000.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the U.S. is in touch with Greek officials about the case and is calling on the Greek government to find him and return him to prison.
