Anti-terrorist police examine data found on USB stick


Anti-terrorist police were on Monday examining the content of a USB stick said to contain a statement claiming responsibility for a bomb blast outside the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) in central Athens last month, according to reports.

The memory stick was reportedly found on Emmanouil Benaki street in Exarchia, central Athens, following a phone call by an unidentified man.

No more information was immediately available.

The November 24 blast caused serious damage to the premises of SEV and the Cypriot Embassy, which is located directly opposite the federation’s offices. It also blew out windows from other adjacent buildings and caused damage to a gas station on the same street.
