ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek police intercepted eight suspect packages at a postal sorting center in Athens on Monday, after the dispatch of two booby-trapped letters to the IMF and the German Finance Ministry last week.

"Eight suspect packages which listed as recipients persons in European countries were located and confiscated today," police said in a text message to journalists.
