  • [01] Papandreou in fire-ravaged Ilia prefecture

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou visited the fire-ravaged village of Artemida in the prefecture of Ilia, in the western Peloponnese, on Thursday afternoon and talked with local residents, while he was briefed on their condition a year after the fires.

    Papandreou also laid a white rose at the location where 12 people had lost their lives during the wildfire and later he visited the residence of a police officer who served at the party's head office in Athens and whose sister had lost her life together with her three children in the fire.

    Later in the day, Papandreou will visit the Town Hall in Ancient Olympia and deliver a cheque for 1.2 million euros, which amounts to a third of the PASOK party's election subsidisation by the state budget, an amount that he promised would be given to wildfire-ravaged regions in Ilia.

    In the evening, the PASOK leader will be attending a dinner with local party cadres in the city of Amaliada.

    [02] Vartholomeos in Karyes

    Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos (Bartholomew I) was greeted with Byzantine-style splendour and pageantry on Thursday in the semi-autonomous monastic community of Mount Athos. Vartholomeos arrived to on the peninsula by ship and will remain until Aug. 26 in order to attend celebrations for the 500-year anniversary of the local monastery of Dionyssios, St. Nyfonos.

    The Patriarch was accompanied by the Orthodox Metropolitan of Austria and others. Later Vartholomeos was received in the Athos capital of Karyes by delegates of the 20 monasteries of Mount Athos.
