More than 15,000 Greeks marched through the center of Athens to the American Embassy to demand an end to nuclear testing and the removal of four U.S. military bases from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization country. The march was sponsored by four Communist- and Socialist-backed peace movements and more than 100 local labor unions and peace groups, organizers said.

An antitank rocket hit a perimeter wall of the U.S. Embassy in Athens on Thursday, damaging three parked cars, authorities said. There were no injuries in the blast, which appeared to be aimed at the embassy, a police spokesman said, and the White House strongly condemned the attack. Police headquarters said that a previously unknown group calling itself National Struggle claimed responsibility in a phone call to Athens' private Antenna television channel an hour after the blast.

An American defense attache assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Athens was killed by a bomb near his home today, a Pentagon spokesman said. The attache, a Navy captain who was identified by police in the Greek capital as William Nordine, had just left his home in the wealthy north Athens suburb of Kefalari when the blast occurred. The bomb had been placed in another car parked about 100 yards from Nordine's home and appeared to have been detonated by remote control as he drove by, police added.
