The car of Albania's counsul in the city of Thessaloniki was damaged by a bomb made of camping gas canisters. The explosion happened overnight , on friday 28th, and didn't cause any injuries.

The incident most probably is related to the anti-governement proteststhat happened last week in the capital of Albania, Tirana. Where, 3 people was killed and 150 injuried during the demonstrations. The protests started after prime minister "Sali Berisha" rejected the early elections over alleged corruption.
