Athens Metro Driver Finds Explosive Device on Train, Police Say

The driver of an Athens metro train found an explosive device under a seat in one of his train’s wagons yesterday evening, Greek police said.

The device, which consisted of a four-liter (one gallon) container with inflammable liquid, batteries, a timer device, cables and a switch, was found in a gift box on a train at the Egaleo terminus station in western Athens before it was due to pick up passengers and begin a service to Athens International Airport, a police spokeswoman said today in a phone interview on condition of anonymity in keeping with police force policy.

Officers neutralized the device and a forensic investigation is continuing, the spokeswoman said.
