Anarchists attack 4 banks in Greece
Police say that four banks and a local branch of the ruling New Democracy party have been attacked in an "Athens suburb." A few hours before this attack, another New Democracy office was "firebombed." No arrests have been made yet.
There were between 25-30 "protestors" involved in this attack.
A group self-styled anarchists attacked four banks in an Athens suburb and a local branch of the ruling New Democracy party, police said.
About 25-30 protesters smashed windows and automatic teller machines at around 1:25 a.m. (2225 GMT).
A few hours earlier another New Democracy office had been firebombed, also at an Athens suburb, police said. No one was arrested.
Attacks by anarchists have increased dramatically since the shooting of a teenager by a police officer on Dec. 6, 2008. Most of the attacks occur late at night, but banks and shops have also been attacked during daytime, leading the government to promise increased police presence.
In February, anarchists tried to blow up a Citibank branch with a powerful bomb that failed to explode.
