A powerful bomb exploded inside a courthouse in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki Friday, sending smoke billowing in the building and wounding one person.
Police had evacuated most of the building after a Greek newspaper received an anonymous call warning that a bomb had been planted in the toilets in the building's basement, The Associated Press reports.
The blast happened at 1:30 p.m. local time (6:30 a.m. ET) Friday. It follows an explosion on Thursday night near a prison in Athens, Greece, police said. That blast caused slight injuries to a 22-year-old woman, police said.
The bomb on Thursday night was placed outside the Zalaxias supermarket about 660 feet (200 meters) from the Korydallos prison, authorities said, CNN informs.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
