Gunshots were fired at the home of the German ambassador in Athens overnight. It happened around 3:40 am local time along this busy street in a northern suburb of the Greek capital. Police sources say two attackers on foot may have fired at least 15 bullets towards the residence. No injuries or damages were reported.
