  • [01] 2 foreign nationals arrested in fatal mugging that sparked protests.

    (ANA-MPA) -- Authorities on Thursday announced the arrests of two suspects in the fatal mugging of 44-year-old Manolis Kantaris in an Athens inner city district last week, when the victim attempted to retrieve his car to carry his wife to a maternity ward to give birth to their second child.

    The shocking incident generated heated protests in the area -- near Victoria square -- with far-rightists groups rallying at the site of the killing against the presence of illegal migrants in the city's centre, followed by counter-rallies by ultra-leftists.

    Both of the suspects were identified as Afghan nationals, presumably illegal migrants. A third man, also described as an Afghan, is wanted.

    [02] Fish with...human-like lips

    (ANA-MPA) -- A strange-looking fish with human-like lips and teeth was caught last Sunday by a local fisherman off the coasts of Sykia in Halkidiki, northern Greece.

    The 45-year-old fisherman told ANA-MPA that the 40-cm-long fish had a round shape, rough skin and weighted roughly 700 grams.

    "I haven't seen anything like it before," he said, "it managed to survive outside the water for more than five hours. It had an unusual skin and gills were absent replaced by a tiny opening it used in breathing."

    The fish, believed to have migrated to the area from warmer waters, will be examined in Aristotle University laboratories in Thessaloniki to determine its origin.
