Greeks Tried To Blow Up The IMF Too

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today, German police reported that a militant Greek group called Conspiracy of Fire Cells claimed responsibility for the attempt to kill Germany's finance minister Wolfgang Schauble with a package full of explosives that was mailed to the German Finance Minister. The parcel was mailed to Schaeuble from a post office branch in Athens but as discussed previously, was intercepted by the German finance ministry's mail department. Luckily, nobody was hurt.

Unfortunately, today someone was hurt when a letter bomb exploded at the French headquarters of the IMF. And, according to a report by the AFP, "militant", or otherwise, Greeks may have been responsible for this terrorist activity too, because as the French news agency notes, "fragments of Greek stamps found at Paris IMF letter bomb site: probe source."

As Reuters, adds, a female employee of the IMF suffered injuries to her face and arms on Thursday when a letter bomb mailed from Greece and addressed to the world lender's European representative blew up as she opened it, officials said. The letter, which had arrived by mail, exploded as it was opened by a secretary at the institution's office in an upscale part of Paris.

The secretary, whose hearing was also affected, was receiving treatment but her injuries were not life-threatening, Paris police chief Michel Cadot told reporters. The blast caused little damage to the office.

A militant Greek group, Conspiracy of Fire Cells, claimed responsibility for a parcel bomb mailed to German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble on Wednesday, but there was no immediate claim for the Paris attack.


However, a Greek return address was on the envelope which exploded in Paris, Greece's public order minister said in Athens. "French authorities just informed us that it was mailed from Greece," Nikos Toskas told Ant1 Television.


The explosion was caused by a device that was fairly home-made, "like a big fire cracker," police chief Cadot said. Asked if the head of the IMF's European office had received threats, Cadot said: "There had been some phone calls in recent days but they don't seem necessarily to be linked to this matter."


The IMF has been involved in talks between Greece and its international creditors on disbursing new loans to Athens under a bailout program.

Alas, we have no more information as of this moment, so anyone asking if Greek terrorist passports were also found, or why the package wasn't mailed by Russian hackers, will have to wait.

Conspiracy of Fire Cells?  Sounds like a cell phone battery thing.

Wow, aren't Greek terrorists thoughtful? Nice to see nothing gets past the Clouseaus to be found within the French constabulary!

Alas ~ Nobody has EVER understood the technology behind this mythical GREEK FIRE...


Apparently ~ It can BLOW THINGS UP... but an envelope within that fireball, with a return address, remains as pristine as an Arab passport tossed out of an airliner by a skilled pilot steering with only one hand, only milliseconds before it strikes a tower and bursts into an all consuming fireball...

Return address on a letter bomb?  I thought only Al CIAda or Mossad thought we were that stupid.

Was going to comment about the only thing Russian was the vodka they drank but that Greek Ouzo makes for a wonderful molotov.

Not that theres anything wrong with that.

Those western alphabets and (don't) Think Tanks are brilliant at foreseeing which way the wind is blowing in order to quell future dissent. I wonder why they can't put those same resources to use in creating solutions to the turmoil & chaos in the first place.

Preventative Measures as such!

These Grecian idiots are not helping their cause by injuring lowly secretaries

LOL.  You really think it was the Greeks?  Truth be told, I don't know.  I just know when to expect no truth in a hurry.  Let's wait.

No they could do with lessons from the now defunct IRA. They dun a good letterbomb or two.

Ironically, once the IRA figured out that Westminster simply didn't care what happened to Irish moderates, Ulstermen, or even their own soldiers, their whole approach was to target property, not people (to make it harder to call them bad guys).  And they didn't bother with anything as small as a letter bomb.  Years of slum violence and nothing happens, but attack the UK's equivalent of Wall Street and drive an insitution like Lloyd's of London into bankruptcy - and do it bloodlessly - and things happened very quickly.

Big devices booby-trapped to prevent them being moved or disarmed.  Choose your targets in terms of market disruption and financial losses, not blood and horror.  Then warn everybody: the tenants, the owners, the government, the newspapers and TV networks, and in the social media age, post it on Facebook and Twitter.  If you only warn the government, they just might not spread the word in order to get themselves an atrocity they can use against you.  And warn them days ahead of time in order to make an evacuation possible.

Since when the CIA and BND (they are currently looking after their investments in Greece) were Grecian??????

The greek fire crackers that I witnessed at Easter did REAL DAMAGE TO PROPERTY  and injured people and sometimes there were DEATHS.

Of course we have Madam Marine Le Pen to consider.

It is enough to make me a firm believer in false flag attacks. Come on, almost no damage and then we have political hacks handling the evidence.

"Conspiracy of Fire Cells"

Is this.....

1.  Name of a new pop band.

2.  A simple statement that a group of fire cells is called a conspiracy (like a murder of crows).

3.  An alcoholic drink using Tijuana Sweet Hat.

4.  A popular vegas act. 


Gotta be something because it sure don't sound like the name of a terrorist organization to me.

Actually, it is the practice of sodomizing inmates with ghost peppers.

Greeks may have been responsible for this debt slave activity too,  FIXED IT

Know your enemy , terrorist attack innocents and we lose rights. Debt slaves attack the source of the CON. They're just bankers no one special ,they aren't saving lives or curing cancer. Financial terrorists should end up like religious terrorists. In Jail or Dead

It seems a little strange that someone sending a bomb through the mail would put his return address on the package.

They left their Greek passport in the package and don't forget All EU Passports are bomb proof like the Middle Eastern Versions.

just look at this awesome bag, no???

it was on sale in Thessaloniki,

I got it for two drakma and a salt shaker.

Greece is a bargain, I'd recommend it to anyone but the Greeks.

Core112's picture

The article is missing an important point: the return addresses on both envelopes were not random. They were the names and addresses of two right-wing clown politicians known for their extremely conservative views and hysterical reactions.
Employee's injury aside, the entire Greece had the giggles today.
