State Department on N17 hitman's furlough: 'Terrorists should not get a vacation from jail'

The US State Department said on Tuesday it deplored the new prison leave granted by Greek authorities to convicted November 17 hitman Dimitris Koufodinas, saying terrorists should not "get a vacation."

"We would once again like to condemn the release of a convicted terrorist," State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told journalists at regular press briefing on Tuesday.
