Serbia’s consul in the northern Greek town Radomir Živković told journalists the incident was “not aimed against the person who used the car, or against the state of Serbia”.
“Police is convinced this was the work of anarchists who often stage similar acts in Thessalonica and Athens,” Živković said, adding that the Greek police was expected to issue an official statement later today.
The car that burned in the explosion causing no injuries was located in the parking lot outside the apartment where one of the consulate employees lived.
Two small gas canisters were used as the device, detonated from a distance, Živković also said.
Another vehicle with Greek license plates also exploded in the incident.
