ATHENS – Greek police said a homemade bomb of two cooking canisters exploded outside the offices of software giant Microsoft in the country’s capital but no one was injured.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the explosion although terrorist groups have said they were going to target big businesses. The blast damaged the building’s entrance.
Microsoft’s offices in Athens were also attacked in June 2012, when a mini-van packed with flammable materials was driven into the entrance and then fired upon by gunmen.
That attack was claimed by the Informal Anarchist Federation-International Revolutionary Front (FAI-IRF). This explosion came as the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA-led government, accused of harboring sympathies for extremists, is moving to release terrorists from prison.
