ATHENS, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- Eleven suspicious envelopes were sent on Thursday to a court in the Greek port city of Piraeus, the Greek national news agency AMNA reported.

One of the envelopes, which was opened, contained suspicious powder. A special police unit was alerted to collect the envelopes for examination.

All letters were mailed from within Greece and were addressed to judges, according to initial information.

In January this year, Greek authorities were put on alert as dozens of envelopes, many of them containing suspicious powder, were sent to over a dozen universities across the country. Most of the letters were addressed to professors and were sent from India.

At least nine people had received medical help after reporting minor health problems. The powder proved to be an "industrial irritant". Enditem
