Police on Friday morning shut down Parliament and cordoned off the area around it after a bomb threat was made by an anonymous caller.

The caller phoned the offices of the Zougla.gr news website, saying that explosive devices had been placed “inside and outside Parliament.”

“There will be victims. Beware,” the caller reportedly threatened.

Bomb disposal experts have been dispatched to the scene.
