Spent bullet casings were found outside the ambassador’s residence
Shots were fired at the German ambassador’s residence in Athens early on Monday, without causing injury.
Bullets were found embedded in the steel gate, Greece’s Kathimerini news website reports.
Ambassador Wolfgang Dold’s residence is in the Greek capital’s Halandri district. The raid took place at around 03:30 local time (01:30 GMT).
It is not clear who the attackers were. Germany’s insistence on budget cuts has caused much resentment in Greece.
At least 60 spent bullet casings were found at the scene of the attack.
