The blast, which caused no injuries, occurred before 4 a.m. Friday near Athens City Center.

Police say extortionists, who have carried out several similar attacks in recent years, are responsible for the attack.
On Thursday morning, another bomb exploded outside a court in Athens City Center after an anonymous phone threat gave police the chance to evacuate the area.
The blast, which occurred 40 minutes after a warning to a newspaper and private TV station, gave authorities time to evacuate nearby buildings.
According to reports, the explosive device had been placed on a motorbike in front of the building.
The blast damaged two administrative court buildings in central Athens, shattered windows and damaged cars and sent up a cloud of smoke that was visible across the city.
