Police in Australia have released astonishing CCTV footage showing a would-be thief blowing up a cash machine and being knocked off his feet before running away as alarms sound.

The video shows the man, who is wearing a baseball cap and a shirt over his face, lighting an explosive and placing it on the ATM machine.

Yet the device explodes before the man can move away, setting off a large explosion and knocking the man over. He falls to the ground a few feet back, yet appears relatively unhurt as he quickly gets to his feet and runs off into the distance.

The head of Germany's influential Ifo economic research institute, Hans-Werner Sinn, meanwhile called a Greek exit from the euro zone an option.

"Further debt cuts will be needed again and again, unless the country is released from the euro zone and allowed to regain its competitiveness by devaluation," he told German daily Tagesspiegel.
