Blast Destroys Car of Greek CCTV System Chief

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - A bomb blast Friday damaged a car belonging to a civil servant in charge of surveillance cameras that monitor Greek roads, police said. No one was injured.

The early morning explosion occurred in the southern seaside Hellenikon, a suburb of Athens, and police said it was caused by a bomb that contained at least one stick of dynamite.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, police said. The blast shattered windows in a nearby house.

The car's owner, Ioannis Theofilis, was recently interviewed on television defending plans to instal more cameras on national highways.

The cameras have been unpopular. At least 50 cameras have been damaged over the past year.
