An anarchist group called Revolutionary Liberation Action has claimed responsibility for a bomb attack against the office of former Socialist Prime Minister Costas Simitis.
The daily newspaper Eleftherotypia said Friday it had received an e-mail from the group claiming responsibility for Thursday's attack, which caused minor damage and no injuries.
In its e-mail, the group said it targeted Simitis as a representative of the country's political and economic elite. Simitis served as prime minister from 1996-2004.
The group has struck several times in the past few years, usually planting bombs at politicians' offices, ministry buildings or banks. Small anarchist groups frequently target symbols of wealth and authority in Greece.
