WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department on Tuesday designated Christodoulos Xiros and Nikolaos Maziotis, members of Greek urban guerrilla groups, as terrorists, a day after protesting a new law approved by Greece's parliament.

"As a result of these designations, all property subject to U.S. jurisdiction in which Xiros and Maziotis have any interest is blocked and any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen," the State Department said in a statement.
