“Turkish nationalists” send threatening e-mails to Athens Airport, hospitals, church

Greek police was set on alert on Friday morning after new threatening e-mails were sent again to Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” as well as several hospitals and one church in the Greek capital.

The e-mails warned of the existence of explosive devices, i.e. “mines” at the airport and the hospitals were reportedly sent “Turkish nationalists” as one of the published e-mail shows.

“We are Turkish nationalists. We have planted a mine in your airport. We will destroy the Orthodox Church in Hellene and establish Sharia law,” one of the three emails said. It demanded the release of the Russian national arrested in the beginning of the week for similar e-mails to Athens airport and six hospitals.

According to media information, three emails arrived, with the first stating that “mines” have been placed in Pammakaristos, Children hospital Paidon, Errikos Dunan, Tzanio, Evangelismos and Gennimatas hospitals.

The second email spoke of a “mine” in Eleftherios Venizelos and the third “in the Church”.

However, during investigations by Greek police nothing suspicious was found.

Authorities are trying to identify the sender, in order to proceed with his arrest.

The police were called to deal with a similar incident beginning of the week, when emails were again sent about the existence of explosive devices in Eleftherios Venizelos and six hospitals.

The e-mail sender, a Russian national living in Greece, was arrested and brought to justice.
