Police authorities arrested three “heavily armed” British men of Iraqi origin carrying more than a dozen guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition in Alexandroupolis, northern Greece.
Authorities seized more than 240,000 bullets, 4 riffles and 18 weapons after searching their trailer.
The photos released by police counterterrorist elements and National Intelligence Agency show that the three persons arrested had turned their trailer where they were living into an armory.
The suspects reportedly claimed they are translators and had been staying at a hotel in Alexandroupolis for eight days.
According to recent information, while initially the two arrested men reportedly were Islamist extremists without being on any terrorist or criminal database, they are now reportedly believed to be Kurdish who fight against IS in Syria and Iraq. The third man claims he is Kurdish and is believed to have been carrying weapons for his patriots who fight against IS in Syria.
