Another Bomb in Rome – Greek Embassy Targeted

Another bomb was discovered at the Greek Embassy in Rome this morning.
This follows the bomb blasts last week at the Swiss and Chilean Embassies.

A parcel bomb exploded Thursday at the Swiss Embassy in Rome seriously injuring a 53 year-old employee.

Reuters reported:

Bomb disposal experts disarmed on Monday a device sent to the Greek embassy in Rome, days after parcel bomb attacks claimed by an Italian anarchist group wounded two people at the Swiss and Chilean missions.

Police said the package found at the Greek embassy resembled the bombs which exploded in Rome last week, costing an employee of the Chilean embassy two fingers and also injuring a member of the Swiss embassy staff.

“The package was similar to the ones at the other embassies,” Maurizio Mezzavilla, an official of the carabinieri, Italy’s paramilitary police, told reporters outside the embassy, adding that anarchist involvement “could not be ruled out.”

However, he said investigations were still being conducted and there was no firm evidence of who was responsible.

“A suspect package arrived; we immediately informed the carabinieri who arrived immediately and neutralized the bomb,” Michael Campanis, the Greek ambassador to Italy told reporters.
