ATHENS - An explosive device went off close to a bank in a shopping center near Athens on Sunday, lightly injuring two security staff and damaging stores, police said.

The explosion followed a spate of gun and makeshift bomb attacks on organizations, journalists and political figures in recent weeks, some claimed by groups angry about Greece's deep financial crisis.

The device, which exploded shortly before 11 a.m., was left in a rubbish bin close to a branch of National Bank at a large mall in the suburb of Maroussi, said police.
