    [02] Spokesman says Greek KFOR troops not at risk from Kosovo fever

    07/06/2001 17:20:42

    The reports of an outbreak of the rare Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever in Kosovo do not give rise to concern that Greek troops serving with the KFOR peace-keeping force may be in danger, government spokesman Dimitris Reppas said on Thursday.

    In response to questions, the spokesman said that every precautionary measure was being taken to protect Greeks living in the area.

    [03] Greek stocks rebound sharply on ASE

    07/06/2001 16:40:11

    Equity prices ended sharply higher on Thursday reversing a seven-day decline that pushed the general index around 10 percent lower on the Athens Stock Exchange.

    Traders described the change in the market's course as a technical recovery, a normal reaction to its recent sharp falls, with a low turnover justifying this estimate.

    Banks and telecommunications stocks attracted demand to lead the market higher, with National Bank (+4.37%), Alpha Bank (+3.53%), Commercial Bank (+3.51%), Hellenic Telecoms (+2.70%) and Panafon (+2.46%) leading the way.

    The general index ended 2.78 percent higher at 2,983.48 points, slightly off the day's highs of 2,991.81 points, with turnover a low 201.06 million euros, or 68.51 billion drachmas.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended 3.11 percent higher at 1,746.86 points, the FTSE/ASE 40 index jumped 1.81 percent to 333.17 points and the FTSE/ASE SMALLCAP index rose 0.81 percent to 951.86 points.

    The parallel market index for smaller capitalisation stocks ended at 280.17 points, up 0.46 percent.
