Greek police say thieves have broken into the Albanian embassy in Athens, escaping with an unknown sum from two bank cash machines in the consular section.

A police statement says nothing else was taken in the break-in early Monday at the building in the Athens suburb of Filothei.

Amid its acute debt crisis, since the start of 2011 Greece has suffered a 10 percent increase in thefts and armed robberies compared to the same period last year, according to police figures. Armed robberies on homes have more than doubled.

More than 15,000 people were arrested for theft and robbery last year.
