Greek authorities say police are seeking a convicted member of the deadly November 17 terrorist organization who broke the terms of a prison furlough.
Public Administration Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis voiced confidence Tuesday that Xiros would be recaptured, but said authorities should reconsider furloughs policy for those convicted of severe crimes.
Xiros had been granted a nine-day furlough, and was due to return to prison Thursday.
November 17, which mixed Marxist ideology with nationalism, killed 23 people between 1975 and 2000. It was broken after a string of arrests in 2002.
