Explosion Inside Former Greek PM's Car

A former Greek Prime Minister has been rushed to hospital after a booby-trapped envelope exploded inside his car in Central Athens. 

Lucas Papademos, who retired from his role as caretaker PM in 2012, is reportedly suffering non life threatening injuries but there have been concerns about his eyesight. 

His driver and bodyguard were also injured in the blast. 

Greece does have a history of small-scale attacks against politicians, businesses and police.

Greek police say they intercepted several suspected packages addressed to Greek, German and International Monetary Fund officials in the past two months.
