On 10th April 2014 6:00 AM the Athenians who live downtown had a sudden awakening. 75 Kilograms of home made ANFO explosive substance was put in a car and explode outside the central building of the Bank of Greece just a day before the announced arrival of the german chancellor Angela Merkel. Bombers had informed the journalistic website www.zougla.gr and the newspaper Ephimerida Ton Sintakton at least 45 minutes beforehand. Soon the police spotted the car and  evacuated the area in order to prevent injures or fatalities.

The blast was immense and windows were broken a few hundreds meter around the explosion. The opposite theater Aliki was completely destroyed. The nearby building of the bank was damaged seriously. Of course the Bank took the whole blast.

The central Athens for half a day was closed by the police and that caused a big disruption. Adding the next day visit of the german chancellor Angela Merkel, Athens was unapproachable for tourists and commuters for two days.

The area of the bombing is full of luxury shops, hotels, theaters etc. It was another hit to the devastated downtown market of Athens by the constants demonstration and police blockades.
