This combo photo shows a handout by police, right, of 23-year-old robbery and terrorism suspect Andreas Dimitrios Bourzoukos in police custody that appears to have been digitally manipulated to remove signs of beating, and the same suspect with heavy bruising as he is being led to a prosecutor to be charged, both made on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013. An Athens prosecutor ordered an investigation Monday into whether police beat the four alleged bank robbers, three of whom are suspected of being members of the domestic militant anarchist group Conspiracy Nuclei of Fire. Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias said on private Mega television that he understood the photos had been altered because police wanted to issue pictures that might lead to further information from the public and they needed to be recognizable.
