The victims of the Loutsa shooting were reportedly Turkish and in possession of French identity cards

Greek Police arrested a Turkish national at the airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” in Athens on Monday evening who was carrying a fake passport, two fake ID cards, and bullets. Authorities are investigating his possible involvement in the shoot-out in Loutsa which resulted in six deaths.

Specifically, according to reports, it all happened yesterday Monday (11/9) at about 20.35 when the EL.AS. was informed that, following an X-ray examination (X-RAY) on his hand luggage, objects that resembled gun cartridges were found.

Police officers immediately arrived at the scene and found that the man was leaving for Mytilene, while inside the paper bag he was holding there were four 9mm cartridges. In addition, two forged Portuguese identity cards were found in his possession.

Meanwhile, new evidence about the massacre is coming to light by protothema.gr. According to information, one of the victims of the deadly ambush, of Turkish nationality, had a run-in with Greek authorities for illegal entry into the country.

At the same time, sources from the Hellenic Police said, speaking to protothema.gr, that the identification of most of the victims has not yet been completed.

From the evidence collected so far, the victims were reportedly Turkish and in possession of French identity cards with well-informed sources saying that it is still being examined whether these documents are genuine.

Reports indicate that it is most likely that they belong to a group active in drug trafficking in several countries, including Greece and France.

In addition, the same sources say that it cannot yet be concluded that the six people found dead all belonged to the same group. “It is still not certain that the men found dead are all from the same group. Maybe some of them were from rival camps,” noted circles with knowledge of the case.
