  • [01] Wildfire around Limni on Evia under control, fire brigade reports

    The wildfire near the town of Limni in northern Evia was now under control, the fire brigade said late on Monday. They reported that the fire-fighting effort had focused on a single front moving south toward Mount Kantili, with crews working to set up two fire zones to avert the danger of the fire passing to the village Troupi, on the foothills of the mountain.

    The fire started on Saturday afternoon and appeared to be under control by Sunday before flaring up again late on Sunday afternoon due to high winds and the inaccessible terrain, which made it hard for fire-fighters to reach the site of new blazes. According to authorities, it has burnt through thousands of hectares of forest, inflicting incalculable environmental damage, but has so far not claimed homes or lives.

    [02] Thessaloniki court acquits 26 arrested for disrupting church service

    A Thessaloniki court on Monday acquitted 26 defendants charged with disrupting a Sunday service in a Thessaloniki Church, finding that it was not their intention to disrespect to the church and the premises. The court handed down sentences of six months imprisonment, suspended for three years, however, for 19 defendants also facing charges of insubordination and refusing to cooperate with police processing their arrest.

    All 19 filed for an appeal and were released.

    The defendants were taken into custody and arrested by riot police after a group of anti-establishment activists entered the church while the mass was in progress on Sunday to distribute flyers and protest at the demolition of an old orphanage that had been occupied by refugees and migrants.
