(Newser) – Greek police have intercepted several packages containing “explosive devices,” one of which was addressed to Nicolas Sarkozy, Reuters reports. One, addressed to the Mexican embassy, exploded at an Athens courier firm, slightly wounding an employee. Others addressed to the Dutch and Belgian embassies were detonated by police. Two men with suspected ties to a “Greek leftist guerrilla group” have been arrested; police don’t think al-Qaeda is involved.
