Bomb Explodes in Athens Building Housing a Jewish Organization

Download PDF for this date

A bomb exploded in a building housing the Central Jewish Board of Greece here early Wednesday morning but police believe it was intended for the Athens Workers Union which has offices in the same building. The blast, at 3 a.m. local time, caused minor damage. No one was hurt.

The police theory is based on the fact that two other bombs exploded at about the same time at the offices of the General Federation of Greek Workers and another office of the Athens Workers Union. No group has claimed responsibility for the bombings.
