Workers find mortar shell near Greek parliament in Athens


ATHENS — Police in Greece have cordoned off an area near the country’s parliament after workers found what is believed to be a decades-old mortar shell while doing water line maintenance.

Authorities said several streets around central Syntagma Square in Athens were blocked to traffic and pedestrians Tuesday while a bomb-disposal team from the Greek army worked at the site.

Circulation restrictions were already in effect in Athens and across Greece due to the coronavirus crisis.
