  • [01] UNHCR AID LEBANON CYPRUS

    Three aircraft, chartered by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), will be arriving at Larnaca airport Saturday, carrying humanitarian aid to be distributed in Lebanon.

    A UNHCR press release says that due to the continuing difficulty in delivering humanitarian aid to Lebanon by air or road, the United Nations started moving aid by sea from Cyprus to Beirut.

    [02] TSOLAKIS - GRAMMATIKOS - REMAINS

    Head of the Greek Air Accident and Incidents Investigating Committee Akrivos Tsolakis visited the site of the Helios air crash near Athens, following reports that the remains of persons missing since the crash were located.

    The remains were found in the last week under the Helios airways Boeing 737 which crashed on 14 August 2005 on its way to Prague, via Athens, into the Grammatikos mountain side north of the Greek capital, killing 121 passengers and crew on board, most of them Cypriots going on holiday. The Boeing came down as two Greek F-16 were accompanying it after it failed to respond to calls from Athens control tower.

    Tsolakis went to the Grammatikos site to oversee the collection of the remains of two women and a man which were found under one of the aircrafts wings, which was embedded in a gorge.
