The high-power device was placed at the entrance to the sports club Anagennisi Germasogeia located on Kolonaki Street in Linopetra.

The explosion, at 6:20am caused serious damage to the entrance and the inside of the premises, as well as causing a small fire, which was put out by the fire service.
