    The police have arrested a 35-year-old mentally disturbed man, who was wandering in streets with the head of his companion, whom he had beheaded at Vourvoulos, Santorini at 19:00. As per latest evidence, the man killed his companion, who was a teacher, and then beheaded her. Afterwards, he got out of the house and began wandering in the streets. When the police tried to arrest him, the culprit injured a police officer in the face with his knife. Another police officer shot him four times on the legs and injured him. However, the man managed to get into the police officers' car and tried to escape. Later, other patrol cars blocked him. The culprit swerved and hit two women doctors, who were riding their motorcycle, injuring them seriously. The culprit and the two women are to be transferred to KAT Hospital in Athens by plane.

    Lampropoulos' Statements Cause Discontent

    The ND (Conservatives) headquarters are dissatisfied with ND MP Giannis Lampropoulos statements, which read that instead of hosting a dinner to MPs the PM should have distributed the money to the families of the victims in Perama. Mr Lampropoulos had told Eleftheria newspaper that event was a social one, lacking political content. The reply to the Messinia MP came from the ND Secretary Lefteris Zagoritis, who stressed that the partys event should not be confused with the incident in Perama. Furthermore, he added that the State has exhibited its interest to the families of the victims, by taking measures. Referring to the above development, government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros told Adesmeftos Typos tis Kyriakis that the different views by some members of the Parliamentary Group should not be boosted. "What matters is the result," he concluded.

    Finally, as certain MPs express their views on how the government should rule Greece, top ministers refer to the ongoing reforms, which as they argue are changing Greeces profile.
