Soccer federation HQ evacuated after bomb threat
The headquarters of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) in Goudi, east of the center of Athens, have been evacuated after an anonymous caller warned that a bomb will go off inside the building.
Police have cleared the area and bomb disposal experts are searching the premises after the caller telephoned the Efimerida ton Syntakton daily around 11.20 am and warned that an explosive device has been planted on the site of the building and will detonate at 1 pm.
On Tuesday a bomb exploded outside the offices of the Greek business federation (SEV) in central Athens, badly damaging the nearby Cypriot Embassy but causing no injuries.
