Two unexploded grenades were found near the offices of closely-held Skai TV in Athens. Government spokesman Dimitris Tsiodras described the incident as an attempt to disrupt the elections, as Maria Petrakis and Tom Stoukas report.
An anonymous caller tipped off police to the second grenade after the first one was spotted by a TV employee in the company’s courtyard. The media company was targeted by firebombers less than two weeks ago, according to ekathimerini.
Meanwhile, euro-area finance ministers plan a joint phone call this evening to discuss the Greek election result. They will probably make a statement around 10 p.m. Brussels time, Bloomberg’s James Neuger reports.
Beware what you read on Twitter: Greece’s Ekathimerini reports that allegedly false Twitter accounts have been used to ask Communist party member to vote for Syriza, disguising themselves as official sources.
The police intervened after KKE lodged an official complaint and Communist Party leader made a public appeal for supporters to ignore the message and for authorities to probe the alleged sabotage, Ekathimerini says.
Now just minutes before the polls close.
