Athens police said yesterday they suspected the far-left organisation known as the Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei for a bomb attack which damaged a government ministry but caused no injuries.
The time-bomb went off outside the Greek secretariat for information shortly before midnight Friday, after private television stations received anonymous warnings by telephone.
Police were given about 12 minutes to clear the area before the explosion, the second in a week targeting state property, which caused damage including smashed windows to the ministry as well as neighbouring shops and parked cars.
