Unidentified assailants opened fire on the Israeli Embassy in Athens with a Kalashnikov assault rifle early Friday, police said. Four people on two motorcycles fired shots at the building in a northern suburb of the Greek capital, a police official said. Bullets were lodged in the walls, while 15 spent bullet cases were found about 40 meters from the building. No injuries were reported.

Police cordoned off the area around the embassy. Shots were also fired at the German ambassador's residence in Athens last year.
