  • [03] Stylianidis: 'Take the hoods off'

  • [01] Weather Monday: Rain

    Rain is forecast for Monday in the most parts of the country. Storms and rain in the northern parts of Greece, 6C-14C; showers on the mainland, 7C-17C; cloudy on the islands, 10C-20C. Rain in Athens, 8C-18C; the same for Thessaloniki, 6C-13C.

    [02] Total of 67 illegals picked up off Samos

    Another 67 illegal migrants were intercepted by the coast guard on Sunday off the eastern Aegean island of Samos, a favorite "destination" of migrant smugglers operating just across a narrow strait separating the Greek isle and the opposite Turkish coast. Traffickers were spotted in three different instances off Samoa, amongst the closest EU territory to the Turkish coastline in the Aegean.

    Meanwhile, the number of illegal migrants hosted at a reception centre on Samos continues to swell, following a constant flow of mostly Third World migrants attempting to reach the island from Turkey. Despite increased coast guard patrols and newly arrived assistance by other vessels from EU countries participating in the "Frontex" initiative, traffickers are reportedly seeking new ways to sneak migrants into Greece.

    [03] Stylianidis: 'Take the hoods off'

    Education Minister Evripides Stylianidis on Sunday urged young people taking to the streets over the past few days, included hooded rioters, to take off the masks and express themselves freely and democratically.

    In an interview published in the Sunday edition of an Athens daily, Stylianidis stressed that no extremist group has the right to use the younger generations as a vehicle for ideas that society has already rejected.

    "If you ask me what I have to say to those kids, the answer is the same one that a parent would give to his children; the same one that a conscientious teacher ... would offer to his pupils: Take off the hoods! Nobody has the right to keep your faces covered ... Express yourselves freely and we will listen to you."
