New group claims bomb attack on office of Greek PM’s aide

A new urban guerrilla group calling itself Revolutionary Anti-Fascist Action has claimed responsibility for a March 2 arson attack on the office of Failos Kranidiotis, a lawyer who is also a close aide to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.

In a proclamation posted on the Zougla news website on Tuesday, the group said the gas canister attack was motivated by the fact that Kranidiotis was “a key link and main channel of communication between New Democracy and Golden Dawn,” a neo-Nazi political party.

No one was injured in the attack which caused significant damage.
