A bomb has exploded at the offices of a far-right political party close to the Greek capital Athens.
No one was injured in the blast at the local Golden Dawn headquarters, but police say the explosion caused a lot of damage.
The Golden Dawn, riding high on a wave of public fury at austerity, corrupt politicians and illegal immigration is now the third biggest party in the cash-strapped nation.
At the June election Golden Dawn support was running at 7 per cent, by October it had doubled.
Many in Greece want the party banned because of rhetoric and emblems that mimic those of the Nazi party and the 1967-1974 Greek military junta.
The Golden Dawn reject the comparisons.
