Hatziagelis brothers arrested in New York on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks


Greek-American brothers, Andrew and Angelo Hatziagelis, have been arrested in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York, on suspicion of plotting attacks on high-profile domestic targets.

US media reports state that Andrew, 39, and Angelo, 51 were arrested earlier this month after police raided the brothers’ home, seizing a notebook titled “Hit list” which contained names of several targets.

The brothers’ “hit list”.

“Cops, judges, politicians, celebrities, corporate scum and banker scum,” were among the names on the list, alongside the words “wipe out the scum wipe out the earth.”

According to Ekathimerini, the Queens District Attorney, Melinda Katz, declared that a notebook containing anti-government conspiracy theories was also discovered at the brothers’ property.

The suspects are scheduled to appear in court on February 15 to face 130 counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and associated crimes, and will face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
