Greek police say they have used a controlled explosion to destroy a letter bomb outside the Justice Ministry in Athens. Police said no injuries were caused by the explosion. No further details were immediately available.

Athens saw a spate of letter bombings at embassies in the Greek capital in November. A militant anarchist group has claimed responsibility for those bombings, which caused no serious injuries. A number of suspects have since been arrested and face charges.
