2 Heavily Armed British Men Arrested Near Turkish Border

THESSALONIKI, Greece — Greek authorities say they have arrested two heavily armed suspects near the border with Turkey.

A high-ranking security official, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on an ongoing investigation, said the suspects were both Iraqi-born British subjects in their 20s.

The two were arrested Saturday night by coast guard officers near the port of the northeastern Greek city of Alexandroupolis. They were driving a trailer.

    I’m sure they were just hunting turkeys. Nothing to do with islam.

    • A dozen weapons, 20’000 rounds of ammo!

    OK, I’m glad they got caught. But, how in the hell does one – drive – a trailer?
