Car bomb explodes outside Greece central bank
(04-10 12:14)

A bomb exploded outside a Bank of Greece building in central Athens before dawn today, causing some damage. There were no reports of injuries.
The explosion was preceded by two anonymous calls to a news website and a newspaper warning that a bomb had been planted in a car outside the central bank offices.
Police cordoned off the area, but did not immediately approach the site of the explosion.
As dawn broke, television footage from the area showed the remnants of a car in the middle of an Athens street.
The news site that received one of the anonymous calls said the caller warned a bomb containing 75 kilograms of explosives had been planted in a car and would explode in 45 minutes' time. –AP
