  • [01] Major heroin haul in Igoumenitsa

    Officials in the northwest port of Igoumenitsa on Sunday confiscated roughly 120 kilos of heroin in an Italy-bound truck with Croatian plates. The drugs were found in packets weighing 450-500 grams.

    The lorry's Serbian driver was arrested and will be led before a local prosecutor.

    According to information obtained so far, the narcotics were destined for markets in western Europe.

    Interpol and authorities in Italy were informed of the bust.

    [02] Event at Halki seminary

    ISTANBUL (ANA-MPA) - Greek Culture Minister Pavlos Geroulanos, addressing guests at the inauguration of the art exhibition "Tracing Istanbul" at the Halki School of Theology on Sunday, referred to "the strength of the creation of faith and the announcement of new eras that will make all of us, Greeks and Turks, feel proud."

    He characteristically noted that the exhibition could be considered "a routine event if the issues and the premises, with which it is dealing, had not been points of tension in the past.

    "We shall not know for a long time yet if these moments that we are experiencing are historic," the minister said and stressed the significance of cooperation between the creators of the two countries.

    The secretary general of the Turkish culture ministry, the mayor of Princes Isles in the Sea of Marmara, the director of Istanbul's famed Topkapi Museum and numerous Greek and Turkish artists were among the guests at the inauguration and a reception that followed in the seminary's gardens.
