Portugal charges 89 Hells Angels

The restaurant was destroyed in the attack. Portugal’s attorney general says authorities have charged 89 Hells Angels with crimes including attempted murder, grievous bodily harm, extortion and drug trafficking.

The accused were armed with knives and bats when they burst into a restaurant near Lisbon last year and tried to kill four people.
The attacks were said to be part of a turf war for control of illicit guns and the drug trade. Two of those charged are in Germany awaiting extradition. The incident sparked a major police investigation and a crackdown on the Hells Angels in the country.

The HA first established a charter in Portugal in 2002
