Bomb explodes near Greek prison

A bomb exploded Thursday night near a prison in Athens, Greece, police said.

Only one slight injury was reported.

The bomb was placed outside the Zalaxias supermarket about 660 feet (200 meters) from the Korydallos prison, authorities said.

Warning calls had been made around 9:50 p.m. - 27 minutes before the explosion - to the Eleftherotypia daily newspaper and Alter television station, police said, and authorities evacuated the area.

A 22-year-old woman was injured slightly by broken glass from the door of her first-floor home, police said.

    Is it just about Greece or more, i.e. balkan countires dipped into new trouble? Some people are thinking it's time for new kind of government to establish real law and order or else face anarchy. Where is this greek hell coming from? Is it itme to doubt democracy and liberal economy? If people wake up one morning to find themselves in trouble, whose fault is it?
