Athens court building evacuated after call warning of planned missile attack

Police started evacuating the court houses at Evelpidon in Athens on Monday afternoon over what was later proved to be a prank call. Earlier, an unidentified individual had called the newspaper “Ethnos” at 14:00 warning of a planned rocket attack on building 11.

The police bomb squad was called to the scene but the alarm was called off shortly afterward, after an investigation showed that the call was a hoax.
