  • [01] 136 refugees return to Turkey

    The vessels "Nazli Jale" and "Lesvos" chartered by Frontex left Mytilene on Monday morning with 136 refugees on board as part of the EU-Turkey agreement for the return of refugees to Turkey.

    136 of them are from Pakistan, 4 are from Sri Lanka, 2 are from India, 3 are from Bangladesh, 1 from Iraq and 2 from Syria. Refugees are accompanied by an equal number of Frontex policemen in order to ensure their safe transfer to Dikili port.

    [02] Greek director Theodoropoulos is the new artistic director of Hellenic Festival

    Greek director Vangelis Theodoropoulos was appointed as artistic director of the Hellenic Festival.

    "The task of the new artistic director is difficult, but we are sure that he will work constructively with the board of the Hellenic Festival and the Greek artists to have the best possible result under the current circumstances. And always with the eyes set on the future," the Culture ministry said in an announcement.

    [03] 4,800 refugees stranded at Piraeus port

    "Ariadni" ferry arrived at the port of Piraeus on Monday morning carrying 25 migrants and refugees from Mytilene.

    Another 73 refugees from Samos were transferred on Sunday night by "Nisos Mykonos."

    According to the latest data, 4,800 refugees are now stranded at Piraeus port.

    Despite the fact that three buses arrived at the port on Sunday to transfer migrants and refugees to accommodation centres, nobody boarded. Many of the refugees and migrants fear that the centers are far from the city and expressed their concern that they would be trapped there.

    [04] Fishermen find ancient amphorae in waters near Limnos

    The fishing boat "Panagia M" on Thursday "netted" a total of 21 ancient amphorae, a type of ceramic storage vessel used in antiquity, while fishing in waters northwest of the Mourtzouflos cape on the island of Limnos. The finds were of various sizes, ranging in height from 15 to 80 cm and the fishing boat's captain handed them over to the Myrina harbour authority, where the fishing boat is registered.

    Along with one more amphora recovered by the captain of the fishing boat "P.G. Psarros" from seas west of Limnos, the finds were handed over to the island's cultural ministry services.
