Two leftist guerrilla groups have claimed responsibility for a bombing and an attack on a police station in Athens.

The "Conspiracy of Nuclei of Fire-Nihilists Sect" said in a statement posted on the Internet late Friday that it was responsible for a blast outside the Athens home of former Education Minister Marietta Giannakou earlier in the day.

Also Friday, the little known "Proletarian People's Self-Defense Group" claimed responsibility for the Tuesday attack on a police station in suburban Athens that injured six police officers.

Leftist and anarchist groups have mounted a series of attacks against police, businesses, public institutions and politicians since an Athens police officer fatally shot a teenager in December, sparking Greece's worst riots in decades.
