GREEK police say a bomb has exploded near the Acropolis in central Athens, but it was not immediately clear what the target was and whether anybody has been hurt.

They must be next after Cyprus. I had figured Italy, what with reopening that murderer’s case.
...and authorities know beyond a shadow of a doubt it was NOT terrorism...
Those Europeans, they may not have guns but they have all the things for Molotov cocktail.
Did the Greek police have the foresight to be prepared for just this situation? That is, over the past few years purchase and store, so as to have plenty of stockpiles now of hollow points, armored personnel carriers and firearms to "protect" the public, as the moral and financial fabric of their society winds down?
The Acropolis is huge and well guarded. Been there at night 20 years ago. Can’t believe it’s less guarded now.
Had seen earlier on Drudge authorities were expecting trouble today. Looks like somebody knew something.
Top Down = DONE
Bottom up....= IN PROGRESS
Next UP is inside out....
Geez. Scary stuff going on these days. More than usual, it seems.
Probably workplace violence . . .
The only casualties so far were those unfortunate souls who stood between officials and the nearest microphone, as they rushed to tell the world it was NOT terrorism...
embassy row is near there. There are also rich homes alone the perimiter.
I would say that the Acropolis is NOT in the center of Athens.
Another MUZZIE attempting to take down a monument that is not Islamic....seems like the modus operandi
Embassy row is at least 10 miles away. Iguess everything is relative. :)
Just looked it up. It happened outside a ship owner’s house. No one was hurt.
I was afraid since it was near the Acropolis, it was the large restaurant across the street from the bottom of the Acropolis. It was not.
so far nothing on the satelite or nets.
You can push people only so far. If they are planning on stealing the savings of the people, like Cyprus did, I think this is just the beginning.
not every embassy, and you forget the private residences.
Think small countries and the “beautiful people”.
No, it’s no more in the center of Athens than the White House is the center of the several states of the united states.
I guess. since you can see the Acropolis from every vantage point in the city. it is considered being in the center of the city?
Probably related to people having money seized to bailout Cyprus
Tourist ate too much hummus.............
I’m getting confused. Where did this center of the city focus come from? Not sure where this is going.
Noooooooooo. Not the religion of peace again?
Scary stuff going on these days. More than usual, it seems.
Nothing that has happened has been as bad as 9/11. That was the worst day in our history except Pearl Harbor. What is going on now is pretty cake compared to those two days.
Yes.... they're not sure but they suspect it might have been an American - a Republican conservative... (well, until that's disproved - as it always it...)
The Greek authorities had a hard time breaking a decades long communist terrorist group that killed US CIA station chief Welch and others from the 1970’s thru the 90’s.
It might have been called Action 17. Hardcore reds to the end.
They also have some anarchists who work with the communists, sort of like a red and black Greek salad.
Let’s see who they suspect this time - Rush Limbaugh and his brother David; Sean Hannity and that great Irish terrorist Bill O’Reilly (brother of IRA singer Baba O’Reilly), the Easter Bunny?
We could wake up tomorrow and have another disaster. Only God knows. Lots of crazy stuff is going on...and it’s getting worse. Look at what’s going on in N Korea.
