History of the November 17 group

The November 17 (aka 17-N) revolutionary organization was named after the day of the uprising by the students of the Polytechnical School in Athens, 17 November 1973. The uprising was crashed by the Army and was the apex of the students' revolt against the Colonels' regime led by Papadopoulos.
The 17-N group showed up in 1975, one year after the fall of the military junta. They murdered Richard Welch, the head of the CIA bureau in Athens. Another 21 peoples were later killed by 17-N, including American, British and Turkish diplomats as well as Greek policemen, businessmen and politicians.
The group was disbanded with the help of Scotland Yard in June 2002, following an aborted attempt. The supposed leaders of the group are Alexandre Giotopoulos, arrested on 18 July 2002 in the island of Lipsos (Dodecanese), and Dimitris Koufondinas.
