An improvised explosive device comprising eight gas canisters went off outside a bookstore owned by New Democracy vice president Adonis Georgiadis early yesterday, causing damage but no injuries. Police had cordoned off the area in the northern Athens suburb of Kifissia following an anonymous call to the Zougla.gr news website, warning that a bomb had been placed at the store. Experts were yesterday examining the remains of the homemade device. Speaking to Skai Radio later yesterday, Georgiadis, whose bookshops have repeatedly been targeted by arsonists, said the attacks were making his family and employees feel insecure. “No matter what they do, they will not silence me,” Georgiadis said. New Democracy and leftist SYRIZA issued statements condemning the attack.
