Greek mail bombers target 5 embassies

Police in Greece say five embassies were targeted in mail bomb attacks, with two of the devices exploding but causing no injuries.
The blasts occurred Tuesday outside the Swiss Embassy and at a Russian Embassy compound, while booby-trapped parcels sent to the embassies of Bulgaria, Germany and Chile were destroyed in separate controlled explosions.
The attacks follow the arrest of two Greek mail-bomb suspects in Athens Monday on suspicion of trying to post at least four parcel bombs to French President Nicolas Sarkozy and the Mexican, Dutch and Belgian embassies.
