A terrorist group has warned tourists not to travel to Greece, saying it is preparing to turn the country into a 'war zone'.
The group told tourists to keep away because it wants to turn Greece into a 'war zone'
In the middle of a busy holiday season, the left-wing group, calling itself Sect of Revolutionaries, said in a statement: "Tourists must learn that Greece is no longer a safe haven for capitalism.
"We intend to turn it into a war zone of revolutionary activity with arson, sabotage, violent demonstrations, bombings and assassinations."
The militant group also claimed responsibility for the murder of Socrates Giolias, 37, an investigative journalist who was shot outside his home earlier this month.
It says it will wage a campaign of attacks against police, businessmen, prison staff and journalists it considers corrupt.
The militants, however, said they would not carry out indiscriminate attacks, and made no direct threat to tourists.
