  • [01] Bomb planted in trash bin near Parliament

    A makeshift explosive device went off early Saturday evening in front of the Greek Parliament building. The bomb was placed in a trash bin located several dozen metres from Parliament's facade and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    A caller reportedly warned an Athens daily of the impending blast at 7:45 p.m. local time (17:45 GMT). Police subsequently evacuated the area and the Presidential Guard also withdrew from the site.

    The incident's modus operandi resembles previous attacks by self-styled anarchist groups and so-called "anti-state" terror cells usually operating in the greater Athens area.

    Counter-terrorist officers arrived at the blast site, while a massive police presence was reported in the vicinity, one of the Greek capital's most central locations.
