    Renowned sculptor Fanis Sakellariou, a founding member of Greece's Artistic Chamber, died Wednesday at the age of 88.

    The Athens-born Sakellariou studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts, and his works are in display in public areas, private collectins and museums throughout Greece as well as abroad.

    [02] FYROM-Greece-Traikofski

    15/03/2000 14:04:03

    FYROM's relations with Greece were "exceptionally good", as were relations in the economic and cultural sectors, and Greece was becoming the most important investor in the neighbouring Balkan country, FYROM president Boris Traikofski said Wednesday, adding that the only unresolved issue between the two country's, that of the former Yugoslav republic's name, "is not an obstacle to the development of good economic and political relations".

    In an interview with the Serbian programme on Free Europe radio station, Traikofski expressed hope that the good relations between the two countries would continue in the same direction, which he said was of particular importance for FYROM.

    [03] Bomb-Church radio station

    15/03/2000 11:52:25

    An explosion caused minor damage at the installations of the Greek Orthodox Church's private radio station in the centre of the port city of Piraeus early Wednesday.

    The "Anti-State Struggle" organisation later claimed resonsibility for the home-made bomb comprising six small liquid gas cannisters -- five of which exploded -- planted outside the building housing the radio installations.

    The fire caused by the explosion was quickly extinguished by the Fire Brigade.

    An unidentified caller telephoned a private radio station and claimed responsibility for the attack on behalf of Anti-State Struggle, saying it was "in response to (Archbishop of Athens and All Greece) Christodoulos and his associates".
