A little-known anti-fascist group says it was behind a bomb attack on an office of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party.

The device was planted outside a branch of the party near Athens on Tuesday, but caused no injuries.

The Anti-Fascist Front said: "We decided to hit Golden Dawn's offices because we believe that you have to hit out at fascists first, before they hit you."
