ATHENS, Greece — A Greek journalist was gunned down in Athens Monday, in an attack police say is linked to a domestic terrorist group.

Sokratis Giolias, 37, died after being shot more than 15 times outside his home  in the capital's eastern neighborhood of Ilioupoli before dawn.

Police said bullet casings found at the scene were matched to two 9-millimeter handguns used by the Greek terrorist group Sect of Revolutionaries.

The group attacked a TV station in Athens in February 2009 and said at the time that it would target journalists, politicians and police.
