article imageGolden Dawn office bombed, extensive damage

By Katerina Nikolas     Dec 4, 2012 in World
Athens - At 4 a.m. Tuesday morning a bomb exploded outside the Aspropyrgos office of Golden Dawn, causing extensive damage but no injuries. This is the latest in a spate of bomb attacks against Greece's ultra-nationalist party offices.
To Vima reported a strong explosion damaged the building in which Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) have an office on the first floor. The improvised bomb was placed outside the entrance to the building. The bomb caused extensive damage when it exploded, not only to the Golden Dawn offices but to a store housed on the ground floor and to adjacent shops and houses.
Golden Dawn referred to the incident as a terrorist attack. Photographs of the damage were posted to their website. The party noted the attack resembled the bomb attack against their offices at 48 Socrates Street, the party headquarters, on March 19th, 2010. On that occasion an anonymous call was made to the Eleftherotypia newspaper, warning that a bomb would explode within 25 minutes.
Media reports linking Golden Dawn to violent attacks are frequent: less reported are the attacks by the extreme-left against Golden Dawn.
Digital Journal reported the Greek government is considering outlawing the ultra-nationalist party which currently stands at 13.5 percent in the polls.
