Greek police say a suspicious package addressed to Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi and found on board a private mail courier company plane is being examined at Bologna airport.
The package comes after a wave of mail bombs were sent to foreign embassies in Greece and to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office.
Police spokesman Athanassios Kokalakis says the plane took off from Athens airport at about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday (1900 GMT, 3 p.m. EDT) Tuesday and was to head to Paris and Liege. He said the suspicious package was detected and the plane landed in Bologna in Italy, where experts were examining it.
