Five bomb blasts shook the centre of Athens during the night of 22-23/11 injuring at least two people. A sixth bomb found at a French cultural office was defused before going off. An unknown group called "NOVEMBER 21" claimed responsibility for four of the blasts, although they did not explain the aim of the attacks. One of the bombs broke windows at a newspaper which supports the Conservative opposition, one wrecked a student restaurant, two others damaged a college of political science and the Athens Lawyer's Association and a fifth went off in the dressing rooms of a theatre. Two passers-by were taken to hospital with injuries sustained in the blast at the Lawyer's Association. Staff at the Mesimvrini newspaper were evacuated safely after receiving a telephone warning. The unexploded bomb was discovered in a dustbin outside the French Institute when staff arrived for work in the morning.
