An explosion occurred Wednesday night outside a bank on Santaroza Street in the center of Athens.

The first reports after the explosion say that material damage has been caused both to the Eurobank branch outside of which the explosive was installed and to adjacent buildings.

According to reports, a phone call warning 35 minutes before the blast occurred was made at 10:05 p.m. Police officers found a suspicious school bag and blocked the street and surrounding streets. Shortly thereafter, the threat became a reality and the time bomb exploded. Police officers are already scanning cameras in Athens to detect any suspicious movement during that time.
