According to a report by Reuters, Microsoft's Athens, Greece headquarters was firebombed this morning.
The publication reports that the attackers drove a van carrying a number of gasoline canisters into the building. The assailants used multiple firearms to keep security guards at a distance, as they proceeded to set the van ablaze.
The fire gutted the building's lower floor, but didn't collapse the building. So far, it is believed that at least two individuals were involved in the incident. Fortunately, no civilians were injured in the attack
Right now authorities haven't been able to determine whether or not this was an organized attack by a militant or terrorist group, or just a random attack carried out by a few individuals.
Considering the trying economic and political landscape that has overtaken the country, it's hard to think that this attack wasn't motivated by some of Greece's many issues.
