Greek arsonists target the offices of 2 former government ministers, no injuries

ATHENS, Greece — Greek police say arsonists have attacked the central Athens offices of two former government ministers with small firebombs that caused minor damage but no injuries.

A police statement said a homemade device made of camping gas canisters exploded outside the office of conservative former tourism minister Fanny Palli Petralia late Monday.

Shortly afterward, a similar device failed to detonate at the office of Socialist former public works minister Vasso Papandreou, in the same building.

Police made no arrests and no group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which are the hallmark of small radical anarchist organizations.

Greece is in the throes of a financial crisis, and politicians are criticized for the state of the economy and rampant public sector corruption.
