Bomb attack kills one on Crete

A 59-year-old man died of internal bleeding following a bomb explosion in his field in Kasteli Kissamos in Hania, Crete, on Monday.

According to early reports, the complexity of the device pointed to the perpetrators possibly having some military training. The man?s residence in Kasteli had been the subject of a bomb attack in 2010. At the time, the victim had indicated that migrant workers demanding higher-than-agreed wages were behind the attack.

The police believe the two cases may be linked.
