Explosive devices cause damage at Maroussi tax office

A tax office in the northern Athens suburb of Maroussi suffered serious damage early on Monday after two devices comprising a total of 25 gas canisters detonated shortly after 3 a.m. on the building?s first floor.

The blast caused no injuries as there was no one in the building at the time but it did spark a fire that spread to two other floors.

Fire service workers said that it appears the arsonists broke into the building and placed the devices on the first floor.
