Microsoft Athens offices attacked, van drove and burnt through entrance

The Microsoft Offices in Athens have reportedly been attacked by a raid last Wednesday. The attack involved driving a van through the main entrance of the building, and burning it, resulting in the whole entrance being burnt and destroyed.

This is obviously bad news, fortunately there have been no reports of injuries. Police say that there were three people inside the van at the time of the attack. The attackers forced the security guards at the entrance to leave before driving the van through the entrance.

They then activated a device within the van that caused the van to explode, police say the device consisted of many gas canisters and gasoline. Greece have several small terrorist groups, targeting office buildings such as the Microsoft ones, so this attack could have something to do with them.
