Greece probes dead man's terrorist ties

ATHENS, Greece, March 15 (UPI) -- Greek intelligence officials discovered a map of all of Athens' security cameras in the home of a man killed last week in a police shootout.

Lambros Fountas, 35, was killed Wednesday as police spotted him and another man trying to break into a car. The second man escaped but left behind some blood that was being analyzed for DNA, the Kathimerini newspaper reported Monday.

Police said Fountas was a suspected member of the far-left Revolutionary Struggle terror group that has staged attacks on government buildings and shelled the U.S. embassy in Athens in January 2007, the report said.

The detailed map of the security cameras was found in Fountas' home, along with notes about the cameras' ranges and blind spots, police said. Officials also found keys and were trying to determine what their purpose was.

Investigators told reporters the shootout likely foiled an attempt to stage another attack using the stolen car.
