Greece to announce reward of 4 million euros for information on fugitive terrorists

Greece's public order minister says he will announce a reward of about 4 million euros ($5.4 million) for information leading to the capture of fugitive terrorists.

Nikos Dendias said Wednesday the details would be announced later in the day. He did not specify how many fugitives the reward would concern.

Greek authorities have been conducting a nationwide manhunt since Jan. 7 when Christodoulos Xiros, a 55-year-old serving six life sentences for carrying out killings as part of the November 17 group, vanished while on furlough from prison. He appeared in a video posted on the internet Monday vowing a return to attacks.

In 2012, a married couple suspected of belonging to another militant group vanished following their release from jail after serving the maximum 18 months in pre-trial detention.
