  • [01] Parcel bombs neutralised; police on high alert

    (┴═┴-╠PA) -- Five presumed parcel bombs were neutralised on Tuesday following the detection of four such rigged parcels on Monday in various parts of central Athens along with the arrest of two suspects in connection with the case, minutes after the duo allegedly submitted such a package to a courier firm.

    On Tuesday, two explosions were recorded outside the Swiss and Russian embassies as authorities used controlled detonations to neutralise the devices outdoors. Another three suspected parcel bombs were neutralised through controlled explosions the same day. (┴═┴-╠PA) One was at the Bulgarian embassy, a second was intercepted near Parliament and a third at the courier firm 'Geniki Tachidromiki' at the junction of Rizari and Georgiou streets in central Athens.

    The third package was addressed to the German embassy in Athens but embassy staff refused to accept this when it was delivered and called police. Shortly afterward, a bomb squad neutralised the parcel through a controlled explosion at the courier firm's offices where the package was returned. (┴═┴-╠PA)

    (ANA-MPA) -- GreeceÔs Purchasing ManagersÔ Index (PMI) fell further to 43.6 points in October, down from 44.7 points in September, reflecting a further worsening of conditions in the Greek manufacturing sector, with significant declines in new orders, production and employment levels.

    Incoming new orders fell for the 14th consecutive month, while Greek manufacturers further cut their production levels, with inventories falling significantly in (ANA-MPA) October, along with further cuts in workforce. (ANA-MPA)

    [04] Samaras in Alexandroupoli

    Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras, speaking in the northern city of Alexandroupoli on Tuesday, called for a vote against the memorandum in the local elections, adding that the "extortionate dilemmas" of Prime Minister George Papandreou do not intimidate him and ND is ready in the event that PASOK takes the responsibility of Parliamentary elections.

    Referring to the possibility of his party participating in an all-party government, the ND leader said: "Our problem is not to distribute ministries. Our problem is for the disastrous policy of suffocation to change. And a Recovery and Growth Policy to be adopted. Whoever wants to distribute ministries with a government implementing a suffocation policy can do it. Not us. We shall insist on a radical turn to Recovery and Growth. And the Greek people will send this message," he said.

    He criticised Papandreou and vice president Theodoros Pangalos over the issue of the debt's restructuring, terming their "contradicting statements as paranoia".

    "It is paranoia for the prime minister to come out and say that 'he rules out the restructuring of the debt' and then his vice president to come out and say that the restructuring of the debt is not something bad and we must not rule it out," he further said, adding that "someone of the two does not know what he is saying unless they have a secret agenda and the vice president is preparing the people. The Memorandum Policy does not avert bankruptcy. It brings it closer. They may have accepted it but we reject it."
