    Blast at U.S. Embassy Called 'Terrorism'

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A rocket struck the U.S. Embassy early Friday, exploding inside the modern, glass-fronted building and shattering hopes that Greece's leftist anti-American militant networks had been dismantled.

    Greek authorities said the attack, which caused no injuries, was probably carried out by a domestic terrorist group.

    The small anti-tank missile, fired from across a six-lane boulevard, narrowly missed the large blue-and-white U.S. seal on the embassy's facade and the ambassador's office, and pierced the building above the front entrance shortly before 6 a.m. It damaged a third-floor bathroom and shattered windows in nearby buildings.

    "There were no injuries and very minimal damage," U.S. Ambassador Charles Ries said outside the embassy. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...M&SECTION=HOME
