A Palestinian, Mehri Mehieddin, 29, who is suspected of being a member of the radical Abu Nidal group, has been charged in connection with the July 1988 attack on the City of Poros cruise liner in which 11 people - including three French nationals - were killed, AFP reports from Paris. Mr Mehieddin was accused of 'complicity in murder and attempted murder' in the assault, which targeted a tourist vessel off Greece. He was arrested last November in Germany as he was about to leave for Australia.
