  • [01] Ferry rams into pier in Limnos port, passengers safe

    The car/passenger ferry 'Theofilos' rammed into the pier in the port of Limnos island as it was maneuvering to moor, causing a 30 cm crack in the vessel some two meters above its water line.

    All 165 passengers aboard the ferry were safe and well, and 100 of the passengers disembarked in Limnos, while the rest were destined for the next ports on the itinerary on the islands of Lesvos, Chios and Samos.

    [02] New group claims attacks on buildings under construction destined to house police stations in Athens, Thessaloniki

    A previously unknown group calling itself the Conspiracy Fire Cells of Athens-Thessaloniki on Tuesday claimed two early morning attacks on two buildings under construction in Athens and Thessaloniki destined to house the Penteli and Stavroupolis police stations, respectively.

    Two explosive devices with time mechanisms, comprising small propane canisters, exploded at 4:35 a.m. in a building under construction in the Stavroupolis district of Thessaloniki, causing material damage to the building's entrance.

    A second explosion targeted another building under construction, this time in Nea Penteli in Athens, at 6:57 a.m.

    An unidentified caller claimed the attacks later in the morning on behalf of the group, in anonymous telephone calls to an Athens daily and an on-line newspaper.

    [03] Fire on Mt. Athos contained

    A fire that broke out due to lightning on Monday evening at a remote mountainous area on Mt Athos (Aghion Oros) was placed under control on Tuesday morning.

    The Fire Brigade remained at the site in the event of rekindlings. Monasteries were not endagered.
