In the early hours of April 18, 2020, two fire bombs exploded outside the Athens offices of the Skai Media Group, which houses the daily Kathimerini newspaper and the Skai radio and TV broadcaster, according to a report by Kathimerini.
Four perpetrators approached the building, exploded one bomb in a courtyard and another on the balcony of the first floor, and then fled from the scene, according to that report. No one was injured in the attacks, and the damage to the office was minor, the newspaper said.
On the day of the attack, the group Anarchist Comrades claimed responsibility for the bombings in a statement and a video of the attacks, published on an anarchist website. The group called Skai Media Group the “unofficial press office” of the current conservative government in Greece.
Police have opened an investigation and are examining surveillance video of the attack, according to Kathimerini.
In 2017, unidentified attackers exploded three larger bombs at the same office, which shattered windows throughout the building, according to news reports.
CPJ emailed questions to the press department of the Greek national police, but did not receive any reply.
