ATHENS, Greece — A Greek militant group claimed responsibility Thursday for a spate of parcel bombings earlier this month that targeted embassies in Athens and even reached the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The radical anarchist group called Conspiracy Nuclei of Fire posted a 13-page statement on the Internet saying it carried out the attacks using private courier companies.
The statement posted named the two men as members, and suggested the group would carry out new attacks in reaction to Greece's financial crisis.
"We are ready to live through times of great tension. Polarization and social conflict are inevitable. Greece is continuing its economic downturn and will be the theater of major conflict," the statement said.
