Letter bomb ignites in Greek post office

A letter bomb believed to have been sent by radical anarchists ignited in a Greek post sorting centre without causing any injuries, police said.

The bomb apparently went off by accident after the envelope was dropped by staff at a post sorting centre north of Athens, the police said.
