Greek Government Spokesman Condemns Attack on Brother’s House

Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Greek government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou condemned a fire bomb attack on his brother’s house late yesterday in central Athens.

“By targeting relatives and small children, the devotees of violence only strengthen our will,” Kedikoglou said today in an e-mailed statement.

Unknown assailants broke into the central Athens house of George Kedikoglou at 11:15 p.m. yesterday, while he was at home with his wife and three-year-old child, and threw Molotov cocktails, causing material damage, state-run NET TV reported.

“The entire political class must unequivocally condemn without exception the attempt to propagate terror in our society,” Simos Kedikoglou said.

In similar attacks early on Jan. 11, unidentified perpetrators threw makeshift bombs made from propane gas cannisters into the homes of five Greek journalists working for national media. An anarchist group claimed responsibility, saying it was to protest coverage of the country’s financial crisis seen as sympathetic to the government, according to NET TV. Simos Kedikoglou condemned the attacks at the time.
