Greece: firebombs thrown outside party HQ

January 20, 2014

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Police say a group of attackers threw firebombs at riot police officers guarding the headquarters of Greece’s socialist Pasok party in central Athens, in an incident that resulted in no injuries.

The attack occurred late Monday in an area of central Athens where arson attacks are common, and often claimed by militant anarchist groups. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Monday’s attack.

The Socialist party, a minority member of the coalition government, called the attack an “attack against democracy and the stability of the country.

The government’s majority conservatives also condemned the attack.
