  • [01] Rescued Chilean miners in Athens

    (ANA-MPA) -- The 33 miners that were rescued after being trapped underground in a Chilean mine for more than two months last year, will visit the New Acropolis Museum on Wednesday following an invitation by Culture & Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos.

    After touring the museum they will attend a luncheon hosted in their honor.

    The miners, whose ordeal captivated television audiences worldwide for 68 days, are visiting Athens with their families, accompanied by television crews of the three major TV channels in Chile. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] Stocks soar 5.58%

    Stocks recovered spectacularly at the Athens Stock Exchange on Tuesday, reflecting a rapid improvement of climate in the market on press reports of a European solution to the Greek debt crisis in June (with the approval of a new loan), and optimism over the release of a fifth tranche of an 110-bln-euro support loan to Greece as the government was nearing agreement with troika officials over a Medium-term Fiscal Strategy Program.

    The composite index of the market surpassed the 1,300 level to end at 1,309.46 points, up 5.58 pct, accompanied by a strong rebound in turnover (160.840 million euros). The Big Cap index jumped 6.83 pct, the Mid Cap index ended 3.70 pct higher and the Small Cap index ended 3.92 pct up.

Broadly, advancers led decliners by 131 to 39 with another 33 issues unchanged.
