Early morning explosion rocks Voula

Ten kilograms of dynamite went off outside a cafe-bar on busy Karamanli Avenue in the coastal suburb of Voula south of Athens on Tuesday morning.

Even though cleaning staff was working at the time of the 5.45 a.m. explosion, no one was injured in the blast, which, however, caused widespread damage to the facility.

Police cordoned off the area as bomb technicians scoured the site for clues as to who placed the explosives and how they were set off.

Investigators are exploring the possibility that the bomb may have been set off by a rival nightclub owner.
