A booby-trapped package destined for Mihalis Chrysohoidis, Civil  protection Minister, exploded in the hands of his security chief  Giorgos Vassilakis killing him instantly.

The big question that hangs over Greece is how the trapped packet passed the allegedly strict security checks at a ministry that is about the best guarded spot in the country!!  Just to spice things up there were reports that due to the Minister’s recent wedding and the amount of presents that arrived there was an unusual “laxity” on matters of security!!!
