A car that police said was was blown up by explosives on the road detonated while driving on the main highway around Athens, killing the driver and injuring a female passenger, both Albanian nationals.

The vehicle blew up as it was being driven along Attiki Odos in the direction of Athens International Airport. Initial reports suggest that police found traces of explosives in the car but that changed.

Bomb experts investigating the scene of the blast, which occurred at 7.30 a.m. later said that an explosive device was believed to have been placed on the road after a search of the vehicle did not reveal any traces of a bomb.

The driver has been identified and is known to have worked as a bouncer at a bar. He was on his way to the airport to catch a flight to Tirana.
