(Newser) – Hours after letter bombs exploded outside the Russian and Swiss embassies in Athens, police are investigating another suspicious package at German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s office, the AP reports. Unconfirmed reports state the Greek Economy Ministry was given as the return address on the package, which was addressed to Merkel. No group has claimed responsibility for any of the attacks, which also included at least three more suspected bombs found in Athens today, and several others yesterday.

Far-left domestic extremists have been blamed for the Athens bombs; there is no apparent link to the recent Yemen mail bomb plot. Click here and here for more.
