Greece | Greece wildfires: 74 dead in holiday area

At least 74 people have died in wildfires in the Attica region around Athens, in Greece’s worst fire disaster in more than a decade.

Flames fanned by strong winds devastated the seaside village of Mati, devouring homes and cars.

Rescuers found the bodies of 26 adults and children who had apparently hugged each other as they died, trapped by the inferno just meters from the sea.
