The terror group Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire assumed the responsibility for the bomb attack late Wednesday in central Athens stating that their target was the house of prosecutor Georgia Tsatsani.
In their announcement that was posted on a anti-establishment website they said “we chose to proceed with a symbolic action with only material damages but in the future the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire will not stop there…’
In a posting on a website, the group accused prosecutor Georgia Tsatani of corruption and excessive severity in her handling of a case involving the wife of a convicted group member.
Wednesday night’s blast caused extensive damage to the building’s entrance, nearby shops and parked cars. Police had evacuated the area just before, following a warning phone call.
The group has claimed responsibility for a series of blasts, including a failed parcel bomb campaign that targeted European politicians in 2010.
