    Last month police defused a car bomb outside the bank's headquarters in Kifissia, a northen suburb of Athens, that had the power to demolish the building.

    Greece has experienced an outbreak of violence, predominantly from radical leftist groups, since the fatal shooting of a teenager in December.
