Greek police say the country's civil aviation authorities are suspending all deliveries of mail and parcels abroad for 48 hours.
A police statement says the freeze will allow authorities to check for the existence of more mail bombs. The decision comes after a wave of mail bombs were sent to foreign embassies in Greece and to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office.
Late Tuesday, police said a suspicious package addressed to Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi found on board a private mail courier company plane was being examined at Bologna airport.
Greek anarchist extremists are suspected of mounting the attacks, and two Greek men were charged Tuesday with sending mail bombs.
