Arsonists attack Albanian consul’s car in northern Greek city of Thessaloniki

THESSALONIKI, Greece — Greek authorities say an incendiary bomb has damaged the car of Albania’s consul in the northern city of Thessaloniki, causing damage but no injuries.

Police said Friday the incendiary device, consisting of four camping gas canisters, had been placed beneath the car and exploded overnight. Anarchist groups often carry out firebomb attacks using bombs made of gas canisters, usually targeting diplomatic cars, foreign businesses or banks.

Albania has been embroiled in political turmoil in recent weeks, with the prime minister rejecting calls for early elections over allegations of corruption. An anti-government protest last week left three people dead.
