Police, bank, PASOK MP targeted in city bomb blasts
A group of about 15 suspected anarchists attacked a group of police officers patroling a street corner near the central district of Exarchia early yesterday, pelting them with stones and Molotov cocktails but causing no injuries or damage. The assailants eluded arrest. At around the same time in Thessaloniki, a homemade explosive device made of gas canisters detonated outside a branch of Millennium Bank, damaging the facade of the building but hurting no one. Late on Friday, a similar device planted outside the office of ruling PASOK deputy Pemi Zouni, on the fifth floor of an apartment block near central Syntagma Square, caused no injuries and little damage.
