  • [01] 80 illegals intercepted off isle after disembarking from Turkey

    A total of 80 illegal migrants (71 men and eight women) were detected early Saturday off the isle of Agathonissi in the eastern Aegean by coast guard patrol vessels, given that the specific sea region is a favourite "route" for migrant smugglers operating from the opposite Turkish coast.

    According to statements by the illegals, they disembarked from Turkey in two inflatable dinghies, one of which intentionally sunk when they approached the Greek isle.

    The would-be migrants, all reportedly from Third World countries, were detained and later transported to a medical centre on the nearby island of Patmos for standard health checks.

    The second dinghy was confiscated.

    [02] Ieronymos in Alexandria

    ALEXANDRIA (ANA-MPA / N. Katsikas) -- The Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa Theodoros II and Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos co-officiated on Sunday here during Patriarchical liturgy during the conclusion of Ieronymos' official visit to the world's second-in-rank Orthodox Patriarchate.

    The ecclesiastical leaders, in their addresses, pointed particularly at importance of missionary efforts in sub-Saharan Africa. Patriarch Theodoros warmly thanked the Church of Greece and the Archbishop personally for his cooperation.

    On his part, Ieronymos stressed that the number of faithful in the northern hemisphere is shrinking, whereas the Church is vigorously growing in Africa.

    Deputy FM Theodoros Kassimis also accompanied Ieronymos, as both men were honored by the Alexandria Patriarchate.
