  • [01] Evacuation of Greeks from Egypt

    (ANA-MPA) -- Three C-130 military aircraft took off for Egypt from the Elefsina military airport on Tuesday morning, one of them carrying deputy foreign minister for overseas Greeks affairs Dimitris Dollis, to evacuate 215 Greeks who have asked to return to Greece.

    Speaking to reporters before take-off of the first plane, which he was boarding, Dollis said that "we are setting off with three C-130s for Egypt, which will transport 215 of our people, from Alexandria", adding that "hopefully we will be back in the afternoon and everything will go well".

    Dollis is heading to Egypt on the first plane, to coordinate the evacuation operation of the Greeks from Alexandria.

    He said that, according to information, Monday night was fairly good, and "we are awaiting the development of the demonstration in Cairo so as to have a better picture in the late afternoon", adding that "a fluid situation requires caution and cool-headedness".

    Dollis said the return should be expected after 4:00 in the afternoon, depending on the time needed to board the Greeks in Egypt. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Stocks soar 4.41% Tues.

    Stocks soared on Tuesday, pushing the composite index of the market above the 1,650 level at the Athens Stock Exchange. Buyers took the upper hand in the market encouraged by hopes over a favourable solution to the Greek debt crisis, a significant decline in Greek bond spreads, a successful completion of a share capital increase plan by Piraeus Bank and positive recommendations for the Greek bourse by Credit Suisse.

    The composite index jumped 4.41 pct to end at 1,663.60 points, with turnover rising to a massive 238.587 million euros. The Big Cap index jumped 5.35 pct, the Mid Cap index rose 2.74 pct and the Small Cap index ended 2.74 pct higher. Eurobank (10.75 pct), Alpha Bank (10.75 pct), Cyprus Bank (9.39 pct), National Bank (7.65 pct) and Piraeus Bank (6.02 pct) were major gainers among blue chip stocks, while OTE (2.25 pct), Motor Oil (0.65 pct) and Titan (0.58 pct) were losers. The Telecoms sector was the only one to end lower (-2.25 pct), while Banks (8.07 pct), Financial Services (5.71 pct) and Health (5.60 pct) scored the biggest percentage gains of the day.

    Broadly, advancers led decliners by 159 to 36 with another 40 issues unchanged. Proton Bank (19.72 pct), Ridenco (14.19 pct) and Eurobank (10.75 pct) were top gainers, while Xylemporia (14 pct), Attikat (12.5 pct) and Allatini Ceramics (10.2 pct) were top losers.
