No one was injured in the blast, which caused extensive damage to the building and

    The explosion occurred at 4:35 a.m. on the corner of Iteas and Larissis streets. Earlier, an anonymous caller telephoned 'Eleftherotypia' newspaper at 3:51 and 'Ta Nea' at 4:07, warning of an impending bomb explosion at the specific address, but did not assume the attack on behalf of any organisation.

    Police who rushed to the site immediately stopped traffic in the surrounding area, which is heavily populated.

    The blast caused extensive damage to the building and to surrounding apartment buildings and nearby parked cars.
