'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

ATHENS, Greece - A bomb exploded outside a ship owner's house near the Acropolis in central Athens on Wednesday night, causing damage but no injuries, police said.

The explosion near the country's most famous monument occurred at about 8:30 p.m. (1830 GMT), following a warning call to a Greek newspaper.

Police spokesman Panagiotis Papapetropoulos said officers were able before the blast to evacuate one or two people from the building and to seal off the area of the major tourist site.

The identity of the ship owner was not immediately known.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
