Former Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos injured after car bomb explosion
Former Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos was wounded on Thursday when his car reportedly exploded in Athens in what officials have described as an attack.
The 69-year-old Papademos, his driver and one other are all expected to survive. It remains unclear what caused the explosion. Spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said that following the attack, he had been given an update by doctors on the condition of the three wounded, and that all were in “stable condition, are conscious and are undergoing all the necessary medical tests.” Papademos was appointed to the post in November 2011 and served through May 2012.
