Presence of Multi-nationals in Greece may be Affected by Arson Assault of Microsoft's HQ in Athens.

A coordinated arson assault by armed gunmen against Microsoft's HQ in Athens earlier this morning is another headache for big multi-nationals in Athens. Reportedly, multi-national corporations have already been considered leaving the debt-ridden country because of unpaid bills, falling revenues and the prospect that Greece might be forced to leave the euro.

Fire gutted the ground floor of the blue four-storey HQ of the U.S. software giant, blackening its walls with flames, on the eve of yet another European summit seeking a solution to a regional debt crisis first unleashed by Greece.

This morning's attack is the latest one against a multi-national corporation. Protesting Greeks had already set fire to branches of Macdonald's, Citi and Starbucks in Athens.
