Firebomb attack on bank kills three people in Greece

Firebomb attack on bank kills three people in Greece

Police said two women and one man died at a branch of the Marfin bank which caught fire after rioters broke a window and threw Molotov cocktails inside. Around 20 more people had to be ushered to safety.

"The attackers wore hoods. First they tried to torch our bookstore and then they threw two firebombs inside the bank," witness Vassilis Hatziiakovou told Mega television.

At least two other buildings - the Athens prefecture and one used by tax officials - caught fire in other firebomb attacks on the margins of the protests.

Prime Minister George Papandreou angrily condemned the bank attack as a "raw murderous act".

I wanted to bring to attention the chaotic situation developing in Greece and especially for the people who died as a result of the protests.

Lord have mercy and Eternal be there memory.

Let your will be done O Lord Jesus Christ through the intercession of you All Pure Mother and all the saints!

Memory eternal!  May the Lord have mercy on all those affected.
