Athens killing tied to one in which CIA agent died

A left-wing terrorist group that killed a CIA agent in Athens eight years ago claimed responsibility for the assassination Tuesday of a US naval officer and his Greek driver.

The group, November 17, takes its name from a Nov. 17, 1973, protest against Greece's former military government. The Tuesday attack killed Capt. George Tsantes, chief of American Naval Mission of the Joint United States Mission of Aid to Greece. Calls placed to several Greek newspapers said they would receive articles stating reasons for the attack.
