  • [01] Arson attacks against PPC building, cars

    Arson attacks targetting two Public Power Corporation (PPC) buildings took place almost simultaneously shortly after midnight Monday in Athens' northern suburb of Alsoupolis and southern suburb of Aghios Dimitrios.

    In the Alsoupolis incident, unidentified persons threw molotov cocktails (home-made fire-bombs) at three PPC cars parked outside the power corporation's building on the corner of Roumelis and Kapodistriou streets.

    In the Aghios Dimitrios incident, the perpetrators broke the glass fronting of the PPC building in Panagouli Square and threw molotov cocktails into the entrance, causing a fire.

    The fires were both put out by the Fire Brigade, while police were searching for the perpetrators.
