A canister bomb has damaged the entrance of a central Athens apartment block where Justice Minister Miltiadis Papaioannou has a private office, in the second attack since Monday’s stand-off at Korydallos prison.
Police said no one was hurt when the device made using small gas canisters exploded and caused minor damage outside the building at 28 Academias Street.
A day earlier, youths hurled petrol bombs at riot police guarding the Culture Ministry in Athens’ central Exarcheia district.
No one has claimed the attacks, but suspicion fell on anarchist groups acting in solidarity with jailed terror suspects.
Members of the armed anarchist group conspiracy of fire cells were involved in the failed escape attempt at Korydallos. Three prison warders and 25 visitors were all released unharmed after the stand-off ended peacefully.
