The United States has designated a Greek resistance movement as an international terror organization, removed the designation from another group and continued the designation of the most infamous Greek group, November 17. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said Monday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton designated Revolutionary Struggle as a foreign terrorist organization under the US Immigration and Nationality Act. Revolutionary Struggle claimed responsibility this month for an Athens attack in January in which a riot policeman was shot and seriously wounded. It also was blamed for a 2007 rocket attack on the US Embassy in Athens in which the building was damaged, but nobody was injured. The finding means that the bars any form of support from people or organizations within the United States and freezes any assets of the group held by US interests.
