Unknown attackers firebombed a car belonging to the Saudi Arabian embassy on Tuesday, the second such incident in two days, police said.

Second Saudi car damaged in Greek arson attack

There were no injuries in the pre-dawn attack and the car sustained minor damages after the explosion of a makeshift bomb placed under the vehicle in the northern Athens suburb of Gerakas, some seven kilometres from the embassy itself.

On Monday, a fringe group calling itself "Subversive Cell" claimed responsibility for attacking another Saudi embassy car.

"The reasons for these two attacks are not yet clear," a police official said.

Cars belonging to diplomats, businessmen and politicians have often been attacked by self-styled anarchists in Greece, and more than a dozen have been set on fire in the past year.
