A bomb exploded outside a closed night club in Athens, causing serious damage but no injuries.
According to a police statement the blast occurred just before 4 a.m. local time near the city center and was heard across southern Athens.
Greek police confirm that the club was closed at the time of the explosion resulting in no injuries being suffered.
The club’s façade has however been severely damaged.
Authorities believe that the attack may be linked to criminal extortion groups.
The blast happened nearly 24 hours after a bomb hidden on a parked motorbike damaged a courthouse and other buildings and wrecked cars in the Greek capital.
