A bomb has exploded at a shopping mall in the Greek capital Athens, slightly wounding two security guards.

Police said two warning phone calls were made to local media about 50 minutes before the blast today, and police evacuated about 200 people from the mall, located in the Maroussi suburb north of the city centre.

Shops are closed at the mall on Sundays, but cafes, restaurants and cinemas in the complex are open.
