Authorities on Wednesday launched an investigation after an improvised explosive device was found late Tuesday night at the entrance of an apartment building where a retired Supreme Court justice lives in the Harilaou area of Thessaloniki in northern Greece.
The device, which consisted of a gas canister connected to a bottle of gasoline, did not detonate despite the perpetrators’ attempt to set it on fire.
Also in Thessaloniki on Wednesday at 5 a.m., arsonists targeted a vehicle belonging to the Labor Ministry. The car was parked at the intersection of Mitropoleos and Filikis Etaireias streets. The fire caused damage to the rear end of the vehicle.
