Embassy Attack in Greece?

Reports are spreading across the wires that some sort of explosion (maybe) occurred on the 3rd floor of the US embassy in Athens. CNN reports here, with a different account here.

They're saying no injuries. I'll discuss more when I know more.

It seems that they still don't know who the perpetrators are. They suspect homegrown, anti-US/anti-EU separatists, but there's no confirmation for that.

They can confirm, however, that the explosion was caused by an RPG fired from across the street at the 3rd floor. No injuries resulted, and only minimal damage to the embassy.

Still, this isn't the first time such a thing has occurred. I had no idea Greece was such a dangerous place.

Incidentally, I love the folks in forums who are blaming this (and anything that happens to Americans living abroad) on Bush. Yes, because nobody ever attacked American embassies or other targets before 2001. Obsessive nutcases.
