ATHENS (Reuters) – Attackers on a motorcycle threw an explosive device, possibly a hand grenade, at the Russian consulate in Athens early on Friday, police said.
“It was probably a hand grenade, no one was injured,” one police official told Reuters.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack on the consulate in the Athens suburb of Psychico.
Small-scale attacks on businesses, police, politicians and embassies are frequent in Greece, with its long history of political violence. Left-wing urban guerrilla groups often claim responsibility.
