  • [01] Search for Abducted Doctor Proves Fruitless

    Greece -


    The police search for the 50-year-old cardiologist, who was abducted from his house in Vari on Thursday, has proved fruitless. The family's two cars were found burnt in Varkiza and Ekali. This is the only evidence the abductors have left.

    The abductors had broke into the doctor's house on Thursday evening and immobilized his wife and two children, removing all money and jewellery. When the doctor returned home he was hit by the culprits and was transferred to one of the family's cars and abducted.

    The police have launched a search in many areas including Varkiza, where one of the burnt cars was found. The police believe the abductors come from eastern Europe.

    [02] Temporary Russian Patriarch Elected

    World -


    Patriarch Alexiy II, who was 79, is to be buried on Tuesday at Moscow's Cathedral of the Epiphany after a funeral service at the city's giant Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. At the same time, the Russian Orthodox Church's top body has elected a high-profile bishop, Kirill, as its temporary leader after the death of Patriarch Alexiy II. Church leaders chose Kirill, 62, in a secret ballot a day after the death of the Church's first post-Soviet leader, Alexiy, from heart failure.
