Attackers on a motorcycle threw an explosive device, possibly a hand grenade, at the Russian Consulate in Athens early on Friday, police said.

 

“It was probably a hand grenade. No one was injured,’’ a police official told Reuters, adding that it was not a powerful explosion.

 

No one claimed responsibility for the attack on the consulate in the Athens suburb of Chalandri where police cordoned off the area.

 

In 2016, a security guard was wounded in a similar incident at the French embassy in central Athens.

 

Small-scale attacks on businesses, police, politicians and embassies are frequent in Greece  with its long history of political violence. (Reuters/NAN)
