Group claims car bomb attack against prison employee

An urban guerrilla group linking itself to the Informal Anarchist Federation on Thursday said it had planted a bomb in a car belonging to an employee of Nafplio Prison in Argos in the northern Peloponnese on Wednesday.

No one was injured in the attack, which caused some damage to nearby cars and buildings.

In a post on anarchist website Indymedia, the group said it was acting in concert with Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire, a terror group which last month claimed to have planted a gas canister bomb that destroyed a car belonging to the governor of the capital’s Korydallos Prison.

The statement claims that Wednesday’s attack was intended to protest conditions at the correctional facility.
