  • [01] Foreign ministry condemns 'barbaric terrorist attack' in Istanbul; no Greeks injured

    Greece's foreign ministry condemned on Sunday the "barbaric terrorist attack" carried out at an Istanbul nightclub early on New Year's Day and expressed support for the Turkish people and the families of the victims.

    "We express our undivided support for the Turkish people and address our sincere condolences to the families of the victims, as well as our wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured," the ministry said in a statement.

    According to official information so far, 39 people were killed and 69 were injured when a gunman opened fire inside the nightclub "Reina".

    A team from Greece's general consulate in Istanbul said they didn't locate any Greek citizens among the injured after visiting several hospitals in the city. Although the identities of the – so far - 39 victims have not all been revealed, consulate authorities have no information about Greek citizens or diaspora being among them. So far Turkish authorities have identified Israelis, Jordanians and Azeris among the 15 foreign nationals who died.

    The general consulate also recommended caution to all Greeks visiting or currently living in the city as well as to avoid busy areas.

    [02] Forty six refugees-migrants arrived in Chios on the first day of the year

    Forty six refugees and migrants arrived in Chios on Sunday morning, the first day of 2017, despite the bitter cold, local authorities said.

    Coast guard officials transferred the people at the port after their boat reached the beach of Aghia Ermioni at 04:00. They were then sent to VIAL camp to be registered.
