Police station bombed, a warning was given to allow the authorities to clear civilians out of the area. This doesn't sound like the Religion of Peace's handiwork. Lots of old school communist terrorists from the 1970's and 1980's in Greece. Probably their work.

Bomb blasts hit Athens police

ATHENS, Greece (Reuters) -- Three timebombs have exploded outside a central Athens police station early on Wednesday but caused no serious casualties, a police official said.

Authorities had cordoned off the area around the station in Kalithea after an anonymous caller warned a newspaper about them, the official said.

"The first two explosions went off in a span of five minutes. The third exploded half an hour later as bomb experts were still looking for it," the police official told Reuters.

An ambulance was called for one policeman slightly hurt by the third blast, he said.

Kalithea is near several hotels to be used by Olympic officials during the games in August.

Fears have been running high that the games could be a target of political violence.

"The police are treating this matter very seriously with only three months to go until the games," the official said.

"You have three sophisticated time bombs going off outside a police station, that's serious enough for police."

The number of bomb attacks in Greece had decreased after the dismantling of the guerrilla group "November 17" in 2002.

Athens doesn't know it yet, but the city is shaped like one big bullseye.

In light of 9-11, I wonder if they're having second thoughts about the Olympics. It sounded like a good idea at the time.

Just gonna have to grit their teeth and pray.

Agreed. Muslims don't care about "infidel" casulties.

It could also be some Turks! The Greeks and Turks have a nice feud that runs back to ancient times before Mohammed!!!
