  • [01] Singer, songwriter Nikos Papazoglou laid to rest

    (ANA-MPA) -- Hundreds of people said their last goodbye to noted singer and songwriter Nikos Papazoglou on Monday, as he was laid to rest in Thessaloniki cemetery.

    Papazoglou died on Sunday at the age of 63 after a long battle with cancer.

    He was born in Thessaloniki and began writing songs in 1965 when he was briefly a member of the pop band "Olympians". Over a course of 30 years he founded a recording studio in ThessalonikiÔs Toumba district, where dozens of local artists recorded their music.

    Papazoglou is regarded as one of the founders of the so-called Thessaloniki school of contemporary popular Greek music. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Anti riot police forces to withdraw from Keratea

    (ANA-MPA) -- Anti-riot police forces are to withdraw from Keratea, eastern Attica, where protests against the construction of a garbage processing plant by local residents continued for the past four months, it was announced on Monday after a meeting between Citizens' Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis and Lavreotiki Mayor Costas Levantis.

    Metropolitan Nikolaos of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki served as a mediator during the meeting.

    "Having dialogue is very hard in cases where passions run high and dogmatism is a longstanding practiceÔŽCreative and appeasing interventions such the one coming from Metropolitan Nikolaos of Mesogeia and Lavreotiki are necessary to have results," Papoutsis said after the meeting at his office in the ministry building in Athens.

    Riot police started withdrawing from the area on the condition that local residents remove barricades, thus ending a months-long standoff, and opening the way to new proposals and a re-examination of the issue.

    A specific proposal on waste management will be presented by Levantis and a delegation of local residents in the meeting they will have next Thursday with the environment minister and other government officials, Papoutsis said.
