Thes­sa­loniki blasts.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ex­plo­sive ex­perts in Thes­sa­loniki, north­ern Greece, were yes­ter­day ex­am­in­ing the re­mains of three gas can­is­ter bombs that went off in dif­fer­ent parts of the city in the early hours. The first makeshift de­vice was placed un­der a van be­long­ing to OTE tele­com parked on Con­stanti­nou Kara­manli Street and went off shortly af­ter 4 a.m. The ex­plo­sion dam­aged the ve­hi­cle but none of the ad­ja­cent prop­er­ties. The sec­ond blast was al­most si­mul­ta­ne­ous and took place at the en­trance of a build­ing hous­ing the Thes­sa­loniki Mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Ar­chi­tec­ture Cen­ter, while the third came some 20 min­utes later. The third de­vice had also been placed in the en­trance of a build­ing, this one hous­ing a branch of a lo­cal tech­ni­cal col­lege on Me­ga­lou Alexan­drou Street. Fire­fight­ers ex­tin­guished the blazes at all three blast sites, con­tain­ing the dam­age. No in­juries were re­ported.
