Greek police destroy bomb outside tax office following warning calls

Police in Greece say they have destroyed a bomb by controlled explosion outside a tax office in western Athens, following overnight warning calls to a television station and news website. There was no damage or injuries.

Police said the site in the Korydallos neighborhood on the outskirts of Athens was evacuated and cordoned off, and the bomb which did not explode early Monday at the time the calls warned was destroyed.

No one has claimed responsibility for the bomb. Tax offices have been bombed in the past by militant Greek far-left and anarchist groups.
