The trial of nine suspected members of the "Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire" urban terrorist group opened Monday morning in an Athens tribunal court.

The proceedings for nine of a total of 13 suspects arrested for participation in the terror group opened under stringent security and a strong police contingent on hand at the Korydallos high-security prison near Piraeus.

Six of the defendants facing trial on Monday have been remanded in custody pending trial, while the other three were out with restrictive conditions pending trial, including prohibition of leaving the country.

A total of 13 defendants face numerous felony charges linked to three bomb attacks, specifically ones targeting the offices of current labour minister Louka Katseli (before she assumed the government post), former interior minister Panagiotis Hinofotis and the Macedonia-Thrace ministry offices.
