Greek police, on alert after two parcel bombs were sent to Germany and France, intercepted eight suspicious packages at a postal sorting center in Athens on Monday, March 20.

A security source said they were “addressed to officials at economic institutions and companies” in various EU countries.

Last week two parcel bombs were sent from Greece to the German Finance Ministry, and to the International Monetary Fund in France. One person was injured by the IMF bomb.

A Greek terrorist group, Conspiracy of Fire Cells, claimed responsibility for the bomb sent to Germany, but not the letter to the IMF.

Conspiracy of Fire Cells has increased activity since Greece’s economy went bad. Police accuse the group of more than 150 criminal acts.
