ATHENS, Greece — Bomb disposal experts destroyed a suspicious package returned by the French embassy to a delivery service in central Athens, following a spate of mail bombings that targeted embassies and European leaders.

The latest package was destroyed by controlled explosion Thursday. Police said it was not immediately clear whether the package contained explosives.

Two suspected members of a Greek militant group were arrested Monday in connection with attacks on Monday and Tuesday involving 13 mail bombs, including one package that reached the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.
