  • [01] Strong bomb blast outside Athens courthouse

    (ANA-MPA) -- A bomb planted on a motorbike generated a power explosion, recorded at 8:22 a.m. local time (06.22 GMT), outside the administrative first instance courthouse in central Athens.

    An unidentified caller to an Athens-area television station at 7:38 a.m. warned of an explosion in 40 minutes outside the specific building. Damages were reported to the modern glass-and-steel building's facade as well as to nearby parked cars. (ANA-MPA)

    Police said the explosives-rigged motorbike was parked on the median of the wide two-way street where the courthouse stands, Louizis Riancour St. -- near Panormou metro station in the Ambelokipi district.

    A cloud of smoke was visible in the area. There were no reports of injuries and authorities managed to vacate the building, while the immediate area has been blocked off. (ANA-MPA)
