Tragedy: 26 charred bodies found in Argyra Akti, Mati

“Another 26 charred bodies were found in Argyra Akti, Mati, close to Nea Makri,” Rafina-Pikermi mayor Evangelos Bournous said to the Athens-Macedonian News Agecy (ANA) on Tuesday.

“There is a pile of 26 bodies, just 15 meters from the sea. Police forces have blocked the area. These people must have tried to find a way out into the sea but they were likely trapped in the flames,” the Athens-Macedonian News Agency’s photographer Pantelis Saitas said.
