A bomb exploded at the offices of JPMorgan Chase in Athens this evening. No injuries were reported, and damage was relatively minor. The blast occurred in an upscale area of central Athens, following a warning call to a local newspaper. No group has claimed responsibility, but banks and foreign firms are frequent targets of leftists in Greece, notes Reuters. A series of blasts has rocked the country since police killed a teenager in 2008 and set off riots.
