Book­store tar­geted.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

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.
