Three firebombs explode near government offices in central Athens leaving one woman injured

Three small gas canister bombs exploded near government offices and an influential economic think-tank in Athens today.

Gas canister attacks are frequent in Greece, and have been on the rise as it struggles through an economic crisis that has fuelled anger against foreign lenders, politicians and a wealthy elite.

One woman was wounded as she emerged from her apartment.
