    ‘wo teenage girls, aged 15 and 16, on Monday confessed to the murder of an 80-year-old man in the village of Kerkini, Serres prefecture, northern Greece who was found stabbed in his house on Sunday.

    The girls escaped the house through the window but they were spotted by neighbours who later found the body.

    The teenagers will be led before a prosecutor.
