A gang of robbers wielding machine guns and sledgehammers stole an estimated euro1.5 million (US$1.9 million) from a casino's security van after ramming the vehicle with a stolen truck, police said.
The robbery occurred at the foot of Mt. Parnitha, near a casino about 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) north of Athens.
Police said a stolen truck had been used to ram the van, adding that robbers escaped in a car, also believed to be stolen.
The robbers smashed the van's bulletproof windshield and trained automatic weapons on the driver and security guard, who did not resist the attack, police said.
