Two arson attacks against a foreign fast-food restaurant in Ambelokipi and the Zografou town hall, both Athens districts, took place in the early hours of Thursday, causing damage but no injuries.

The first attack occurred at 3:10 a.m., when a home-made incendiary device comprising eight small propane canisters exploded outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Ambelokipi, causing material damage to the restaurant's glass facade and an advertising post.

The ensuing fire was extinguished by firefighters who rushed to the scene.

Some 20 minutes later, an identical device exploded outside the back entrance of the Zografou town hall causing a fire and breaking the building's glass facade. According to the fire brigade, which quickly extinguished the fire, five of the eight small propane canisters exploded.
