Letter with bullets sent to Greek Embassy in Madrid

Staff at the Greek Embassy in Madrid on Thursday handed over to Spanish police an envelope containing eight bullets and a written document discovered earlier in the day during an inspection of incoming mail.

According to a statement on Greece?s Foreign Ministry website, the envelope contained ?some small-caliber bullets and the text of a proclamation.? No details were released about the content of the proclamation.

It remained unclear how the letter had arrived at the embassy. Its discovery came just a day after a similar package was sent to the Greek Consulate in Barcelona, the ministry said.
