Bosnia condemns attack in Greece
(dpa) - Bosnia-Herzegovina's Foreign Ministry strongly condemned Friday in Sarajevo an attack on the vehicle of Bosnia's ambassador in Athens early this morning.
"The Foreign Ministry of Bosnia-Herzegovina strongly condemns this act of vandalism," the ministry said in a statement.
The ministry said it sent a diplomatic note to Greek authorities requesting better protection for the building and personnel of Bosnia-Herzegovina's embassy in Athens.
The personal car of Bosnian Ambassador to Greece Milovan Blagojevic, according to statement, was completely destroyed in the attack in front of the ambassador's Athens residence.
Arsonists claimed responsibility for bombing two diplomatic cars belonging to the embassies of Turkey and Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday, causing extensive damage but no injuries, reports said.
An unknown person rang saying he was from the left-wing group Anti-Democratic Struggle and claimed responsibility for Friday's attack, the third this week.
Two cars belonging to the Saudi embassy were set on fire using homemade gas canisters in separate incidents earlier this week.
The little known left-wing group Anti-Democratic Struggle claimed responsibility for one of the attacks while another group, Subversive Cell, claimed responsibility for the second.
Reports said the attack on the Saudi vehicles was in response to the arrest of a suspected criminal involved in a bank robbery last year who was due to stand trial this week.
Vehicles belonging to diplomats, businessmen and politicians have often been attacked by anarchists in Greece.
