Greece: Blast at court buildings

An explosion has damaged two administrative court buildings in central Athens.
Police say the blast occurred at 8:20 a.m. (0620 GMT) following a warning telephone call to a newspaper and private TV station, giving authorities time to evacuate the buildings.
The blast shattered windows, damaged cars and sent up a cloud of smoke that was visible across the city.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Greek militant groups have stepped up attacks in the past two years.
