article imageVideo: CCTV footage of arson attack on Microsoft in Greece

Athens - Police in Athens have now released CCTV footage of the arson attack on Microsoft's office in Greece, showing the arsonists forcing entry into the building.
Digital Journal reported on the armed attack on the offices of Microsoft on June 27.
The incident occurred after security guards were forced out of the building at gunpoint by the arsonists. The fire almost completely burnt down the main entrance of the building.
According to Microsoft representatives, they had received no threats or warnings before the attack and a few days later, a little-known militant group called the International Revolutionary Front claimed responsibility. They posted a statement online saying that they chose Microsoft because it “is one of the most powerful companies of the computer sector … which is now carrying capitalism on its shoulders."
Now police have released the footage of the CCTV cameras in the building, which can be seen above. It shows a group of people driving a stolen van into the offices in Athens. The arsonists then set fire to the offices with 150 liters of petrol.
You can see the van finally driving through the glass doors, after a couple of attempts. Once the vehicle stops, petrol can be seen spilling from the vehicle as three people wearing motorcycle helmets climb out of the vehicle.
The men can then be seen around the front of the vehicle, closing doors, and presumably lighting the fire before leaving the building.
