The Paris police
department said on Twitter an operation was ongoing at the
offices of the IMF and World Bank after a person was hurt
following the apparent explosion of a suspect package.
"An envelope exploded after it was opened and one person was
slightly injured in the offices of the IMF," one police source
The incident, just six weeks before a presidential election,
comes as a militant Greek group Conspiracy of Fire Cells claimed
responsibility for a parcel bomb mailed to German Finance
Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble on Wednesday.
