Attack on U.S. Embassy

Athens, Greece | January 12, 2007

On January 12, 2007, a rocket-propelled grenade struck the U.S. Embassy in Athens. The group claiming responsibility, Revolutionary Struggle, is believed to be an offshoot of the Greek terrorist group 17 November.

17 November was responsible for numerous acts of terror in Greece beginning in the 1970s, including shootings, rocket attacks, and car bombs. Their campaign of terror resulted in the deaths of four Americans: Richard Welch, George Tsantes, William Nordeen, and Ronald Stewart.

The Rewards for Justice program is offering a reward of up to $1 million for information that brings to justice those responsible for this attack.
