A home-made incendiary device exploded in the early hours of Sunday at the entrance of a five-storey building housing a ground-floor branch and upper storey offices of ATEbank in the Petralona district of Athens.
The 3:00 a.m. explosion and ensuing fire caused serious damage to the bank's outdoor ATM machine and inside the branch, as well as a parked motorcycle.
The home-made fire-bomb comprised two small propane canisters and a glass bottle.
The fire was extinguished by the Fire Brigade.
An investigation was launched to identify the perpetrators.
