  • [01] Fatalities reported amid protests

    Three dead were the result of a firebomb attack against a bank in downtown Athens early Wednesday afternoon during the height of massive trade union protests against recently enacted austerity measured, aimed to prevent the country's insolvency.

    Initial and as yet unconfirmed reports state that the victims, all bank employees, died from asphyxiation after the bank's storefront windows were smashed and firebombs tossed inside.

    The bank was identified as a Marfin Investment Group branch, located on Stadiou boulevard.
