Turk, Bosnian diplomatic cars bombed in Athens
Arsonists claimed responsibility for bombing two diplomatic cars belonging to the embassies of Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday, causing extensive damage but no injuries, reports said.

The diplomatic car belonging to the Turkish embassy was parked in the central Athens suburb of Halandri while no details on the location of the car belonging to the embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina were revealed.

An unknown person rang saying he was from the left-wing group Anti-Democratic Struggle and claimed responsibility for Friday's attack, the third this week.

Two cars belonging to embassy of Saudi Arabia were set on fire using homemade gas canisters in two separate incidents earlier this week.

An unknown caller said a little known left-wing group called Anti- Democratic Struggle claimed responsibility for one of the attacks while another group, Subversive Cell, claimed responsibility for the second attack.

Reports said the attack was in response to the arrest of a suspected criminal involved in a bank robbery last year who was due to stand trial this week.

Vehicles belonging to diplomats, businessmen and politicians have often been attacked by anarchists in Greece.
