Police investigate bomb crater linked to terrorist attack

Police were investigating a bomb crater and other evidence discovered near the premises of Mercedes Benz in Varibombi, northern Athens, after a far-leftist guerilla organization Group of Popular Fighters claimed to have launched a rocket-propelled attack on the company on January 12, Skai reported late on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the guerilla group also claimed responsibiity for the attack on the residence of the German Ambassador in Athens on December 30, dedicating the hit to the memory of Dimitris Christoulas, a pensioner who shot himself on Syntagma Square in April 2012 in protest at the austerity measures.

According to reports, witnesses of the Varibombi attack said they heard a blast at 11 p.m. and had notified authorities and had subsequently observed police officers scouting the scene for evidence. Police at the time said no evidence had been found in relation to an attack.

In the proclamation letter published on To Pontiki newspaper website on Tuesday, the group claimed to have carried out the attacks in a “campaign against the German capitalist matchine."

The group also claimed an attack on the headquarters of New Democracy on Syngrou Avenue, in southern Athens, in January last year.
