    [03] Greece last in terms of crime in the EU

    According to a publicized survey, Greece holds the last position regarding crime among European Union countries.

    However, its citizens feel very insecure.

    According to the official data of the police authorities the fewest crimes in Greece took place in 2001 during the last decade. There has been a reduction in the number of robberies and blackmails, while the index regarding drugs has remained the same.

    Meanwhile, the police has launched a manhunt to arrest two Albanians who stabbed to death a disc jockey at a bar in Nea Smyrni suburb at dawn today.

    [05] Karamanlis to meet American officials

    Main opposition New Democracy party leader Costas Karamanlis said on Monday the winds of change are sweeping across Europe and have opened a historic window to opportunities.

    Karamanlis, who was speaking at the International Democratic Union's (IDU) summit, said the centre-right has achieved considerable victories both in past years and recently.

    He also underlined that a solution to the Cyprus issue and the accession of Cyprus to the European Union is a ''key'' to stability in the eastern Mediterranean and committed himself that as prime minister he will make every effort to crack down on terrorism.

    Karamanlis invited all leaders participating in the meeting to visit Athens during the 2004 Olympic Games, expressing the hope that he himself will be welcoming them as Prime Minister, something that former British Conservative Party leader and chairman of the meeting William Hague considers to be a certainty.

    Meanwhile, Mr Karamanlis will meet with American Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Colin Powel in the United States today.
