Alarm bells went off at the main offices of the ruling SYRIZA party in downtown Athens on Thursday morning, after an envelope containing a “suspicious” white powder was discovered in the mail.

Police and the fire service were summoned to the offices on Koumoundourou Square to take delivery of the envelope, which was discovered just a few hours before Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was due to visit his party’s central headquarters.

The envelope and is contents are being examined by experts at the Dimokritos research center.
