Kathimerini will not be daunted by the bomb that exploded at its headquarters in Athens early on Monday morning, and Tuesday’s issue will circulate as normal, the newspaper announced.
A blast that occurred at 2:35 a.m. outside the building housing Kathimerini and Skai TV did not injure anyone but caused extensive damage on the facade. A call to Zougla news site and ANT1 TV had warned of the explosion.
“Kathimerini will circulate tomorrow (Tuesday), as it has done the past 99 years except during the era of the dictatorship,” its announcement said, noting that the attack “will not daunt any of us” and thanking everyone for the support they expressed. Messages of support came from political leaders in Greece and abroad.
“We hope that the sick phenomenon of targeting the mass media will stop here now. It is extremely dangerous for democracy,” it said and called on the state to realize the seriousness of the situation, being responsible for the protection of diversity in opinion.
