Arsonists hit five disparate targets in Athens

Police in Athens are investigating whether five arson attacks in the early hours of Thursday are linked.

The first two attacks targeted ATM machines in central Exarchia and Petralona, followed by the firebombing of the Hellenic Postbank branch in Vyronas.

Also, a fire was started on the ground floor of the Kesariani offices of the Democratic Left party (photo), while a cluster of camping gas canisters went off in the entrance of a supermarket in Zografou.
