Greece Fires Suspected to be Intentional

  • The deadly fires that broke out in Athens earlier this week are suspected to be started deliberately. The blaze killed more than 83 people, with around some 60 people in hospital and 11 in intensive care. There are dozens who have gone missing. Many people flee to the sea and saved their lives, but many couldn't as they weren't able to reach the waters. Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas has stated that there were serious indications of fire being started deliberately. Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos had to face angry locals when he visited the fire-devastated areas.
