Two weeks after disappearing while on prison leave, convicted Greek extremist Christodoulos Xiros has issued a video threatening the government.

Serving six life sentences for killings in the name of the notorious November 17 Marxist group, he is now vowing revenge for the country's debt crisis.

"It is time for battle, the enemy is in front of us and we must all face him, begin now, door to door, neighbourhood to neighbourhood, there is no time to lose," said escaped convict Christodoulos Xiros in a video showing him sitting against a backdrop of pictures depicting Che Guevara and heroes of Greece's war of independence.

Xiros added: "We won't be sitting in our offices, we must be out on the streets. It is our job to light a fuse. Comrades of armed struggle, both free and imprisoned, we must all understand that this is our time."

The November 17 group emerged in the 1970s and claimed responsibility for a series of deadly attacks against foreign diplomats and Greek politicians and businessmen.

In 2002 it was dismantled after the conviction of ten of its members for the deaths of 23 people.
