Same bomb type as last week’s attack on former Prime Minister

ImageA deliberately planted home-made gas canister gutted the Ministry of Administrative Reform’s ground floor offices in the Neos Kosmos district of Athens earlier this morning (Monday).

The MAR has been the focal point of delivering the Troika’s sweeping reform programme. The bomb, which exploded at 1.50 am local time, also destroyed three cars.

The modus operandum – propane gas canisters – is the same as that used in the bomb that exploded outside the office of former prime minister Costas Simitis six days ago. But although the two attacks may have a single source, nobody has, as yet, claimed responsibility.
