Two arrested for brutal downtown murder

Two Afghan migrants were arrested on Thursday in connection to the attack earlier this month on 44-year-old Manolis Kantaris, who was murdered in central Athens as he was walking toward his car so he could take his pregnant wife to the maternity ward. Police said that they arrested two of the three suspects alleged to have conducted the predawn attack. The Afghans are aged 20 and 27. The older man had recently served a brief jail sentence for dealing in hashish. He was released on April 5.
