The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party Nikos Michaloliakos, alongside party spokesman Ilias Kassidiaris and three other parliamentarians were arrested by counter-terrorism police earlier today, and have been formally charged with membership of a criminal organisation.
Nikos Michos and Ilias Panayiotaros gave themselves up voluntarily, according to the Associated Press.
A further 15 people, including 13 Golden Dawn members and two police officers, have also been arrested and are due to appear before a prosecutor and an examining magistrate soon. They face the same charges.
