ATHENS (Reuters) - The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party was due to be released from prison on Friday and placed under house arrest after an 18-month limit on pre-trial detention expired, court officials said.

Party leader Nikos Mihaloliakos and a more than a dozen party members were arrested on charges of founding and participating in a criminal group following the killing of an anti-fascism rapper in 2013 by a party supporter.
