One hurt in explosion at IMF office in Paris

IANS  |  Paris 

One person was injured on Thursday after a letter bomb exploded at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) headquarters in Paris, security sources said.

The blast occurred at the building that the IMF shares with the World Bank in the French capital.

The victim, a female assistant to an IMF manager, was "injured on the hands and face", according to reports.

Several people were evacuated from the building "as a precautionary measure", reported the Telegraph.

On Wednesday, another parcel bomb was sent to the German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble, but was intercepted before it could hurt anyone.

That attack was claimed by the Greek radical anarchist organisation Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei.
