Greek police arrested a man over letter bombs sent to EU officials

Greek police say they have arrested a man in Athens in connection with a series of letter bomb attacks on EU officials earlier this year.

Eight packages were intercepted in Athens in March after booby-trapped post was sent to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Paris and the German finance minister in Berlin.

Former Greek PM Lucas Papademos was then injured by a parcel-bomb in May.

A 29-year-old Greek man was arrested by anti-terror police on Saturday.

Police said in a statement that they were looking for other suspects in relation to the investigation.
