The blast outside night club has been linked with criminal extortion groups.

Athens: Police in Greece say a powerful bomb has exploded outside a closed night club in Athens, causing no injuries, in an attack linked with criminal extortion groups.

A police statement says the pre-dawn blast occurred just before 4 am (0200 GMT) Friday near the city centre. The explosion was heard across southern Athens and severely damaged the club`s facade.

The investigation is being handled by the police department responsible for extortionists, who have carried out several similar attacks in recent years.
On Thursday, suspected radical anarchists exploded a strong bomb outside an Athens administrative court, causing severe damage but no injuries. A warning call before the blast allowed police to evacuate the area.
