  • [01] Libyan embassy in Athens turns over arms cache to authorities

    AMNA / Acting on the orders of the current Libyan government, the Libyan Embassy in Athens has turned over an arms cache found on embassy grounds to Greece's counter-terrorism service. The arms cache, consisting of several fire-arms, explosives and ammunition dating back to the Gaddafi era, was turned over to Greek authorities on Monday morning. cache includes 19 pistols of various types and calibres, 11 revolvers, two 9mm sub-machineguns with a folding shoulder stock, bullets, eight silencers, clips, 15 kilos of explosives, five detonators, two hand grenades, a detector for explosives and a device to check for phone taps.


    The weapons have been sent for ballistics testing to the Greek Police criminal laboratories and the counter-terrorism service has launched a preliminary investigation to the affair. amn

    [02] Stocks end 3.47 pct down

    AMNA / Stocks ended significantly lower at the Athens Stock Exchange on Tuesday, as investors took profits - a normal reaction of the market after a Eurogroup meeting approved a new bailout package for Greece. Sentiment, however, was undermined by an IMF report on the sustainability of the Greek public debt, which claimed that Greece may need a third bailout package. amna

    Analysts added that completion of the new lending agreement paved the way for general elections in the country, a development which the market will begin assessing shortly. Bank shares were at the epicenter of selling, hit by a larger-than-expected burden envisaged by the terms of a PSI programme. amna

    The composite index of the market fell 3.47 pct to end at 797.13 points, with turnover a moderate 77.063 million euros.
