    The wildfire that is wreaking havoc on the island of Rhodes, reducing woods into ashes, forced the local prefect to declare the areas of Atadyros, Lindos and southern Rhodes in a state of emergency. Although the fire has not been put under control, no built-up area is under threat. The residents of the Agios Isidoros village have been left without water, electricity and telephone communications.

    In the meantime, the blaze that broke out Tuesday noon in the area of Koutsoupias, in the Larissa prefecture, central Greece, is also burning. The fire front is heading towards the area of Kokkino Nero, but no residences are in danger.

    Finally, the wildfires that broke out in northern Greece and on Crete have been contained.

    The common ministerial order that gave thumbs up for the Greek National Emission Cut Plan was signed by the Public Works Minister, Giorgos Souflias. The Emission Cut Plan aspires to bring annual emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds and ammonia down by 2010, lest national highest thresholds, as set by an EU directive, should be exceeded

    "U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday described the situation in Afghanistan as "perilous and urgent" and said al Qaeda and the Taliban were planning more attacks on the United States. "In Afghanistan and the border region of Pakistan, al Qaeda and the Taliban are mounting a growing offensive against the security of the Afghan people and increasingly the Pakistani people, while plotting new attacks against the United States," he said during a stop in Amman, Jordan. Obama is on a foreign fact-finding trip and visited Afghanistan over the weekend. He described Afghanistan as "the central front in the war against terrorism." "Im glad theres a growing consensus back home that we need more resources in Afghanistan. We should not wait any longer to provide them," he said.
