  • [01] PM Karamanlis attends the EPP summit meeting

    Brussels (ANA-MPA / V. Demiris) -- Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis underlined here on Thursday during a European People's Party (EPP) Summit, convened to focus on global financial crisis, that the European economy is faced with a slowdown that entails consequences for all countries. In statements made after the meeting, he pointed out that a collective response is necessary through the coordination of national strategies and interventions, adding that the priority is to help the most vulnerable social groups and preserve a developmental momentum as much as possible while protecting job positions. The EU commitments on environmental policies aimed at dealing with the global climate change, the Lisbon Treaty ratification issue and the EPP preparations in view of the Euro-elections in June 2009 were also examined, the prime minister said.

    [02] Rioters target police stations

    Rioters attacked a handful of police stations throughout Athens on Thursday as sporadic violence continued for the sixth day over the death of a teen in a police shooting on the weekend. Protestors threw stones, overturned police vehicles and smashed windows, causing damages to at least six police precincts. Earlier on Thursday, protestors clashed with riot police outside the Korydallos prison facilities, western Athens, where the two officers charged with the shooting death of 15-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos last Saturday, were due to be transferred pending trial. Meanwhile, authorities have charged three local residents and two foreign nationals with participation in the violent incidents in the central Athens district of Exarcheia. They are remanded in custody pending trial.
