A package bomb was found at the Greek Embassy in Rome, four days after similar mail bombs exploded at two other embassies injuring two people. The device was defused and no one was injured.

An AP report said that the bomb was similar to the ones that exploded last Thursday at the Chilean and Swiss embassies.

The report said taht no one was harmed in the latest incident, in part because heightened security measures had already been put in place.

"The embassy was evacuated and the staff assembled some distance away from the building, so that everyone could be accounted for," the report said. "There were already heightened security measures at the Greek and other embassies, so the procedure that had to be followed was clear."
