Parcel Bomb at IMF’s Paris Bureau Injures Staff Member
 
(PARIS,March,17,2017): A letter bomb exploded in the Paris offices of the International Monetary Fund on Thursday, lightly wounding one person and prompting the French authorities to announce an investigation of the incident as a possible terrorist attack.

The explosion came one day after the German authorities in Berlin discovered a parcel bomb apparently sent by a Greek terrorist organization to the office of the German finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble, and there were indications that the Paris device also was sent from Greece.

Although there were no fatalities, the episode at such a highprofile target in Paris renewed jitters in France, which remains under a state of emergency after terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015 and in Nice last year.

Michel Cadot, the Paris police chief, told reporters at the scene that the explosion at the monetary fund occurred just before noon when a secretary, who has not been identified, opened an envelope addressed to the fund’s representative in France.
