Suspicious parcel bomb was found in the Greek Embassy in Rome. Three fire brigades are located in the building of the diplomatic mission in the Italian capital.

The parcel filled with explosives was found on Monday morning just four days after similar parcels had exploded in the Embassies of Switzerland and Chile in Rome, sent by an Italian terrorist organization. Currently, carabineers cut off the Greek Embassy in Rome while firefighters inspected the parcel and neutralized it through a controlled explosion.

The parcel was received by a portal officer and contained black CD pouch. There was white powder inside it. The officer immediately threw the package in the yard after having noticed the dust and called the police. All Greek diplomats in Rome are in the residence of the Ambassador awaiting the instructions of the Italian police forces.

The parcel arrived still on Friday but the Embassy was closed for Christmas so the parcel was found today, reported the Greek Ambassador in Rome Michalis Kabanis to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. Carabineer source told the same newspaper that the package neutralized in the Greek Embassy was similar to the one found in the Rome subway the last week.

The diplomatic missions of Denmark, Monaco, and Venezuela in the Italian capital received suspicious packages this morning too. The police check, however, proved them to be safe.
