Rail­way sab­o­tage.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Of­fi­cials of the Hel­lenic Rail­ways Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OSE) said yes­ter­day that they had re­paired se­ri­ous dam­age wreaked upon a 100-me­ter sec­tion of sec­tion of the route be­tween Thes­sa­loniki and the sub­urb of Sin­dos. Uniden­ti­fied per­pe­tra­tors re­moved around 100 me­ters of elec­tric cable on Sun­day night, rail­way of­fi­cials said. Of­fi­cials said the sabo­teurs must have been well-equipped with spe­cial equip­ment and footwear as the track is per­ma­nently elec­tri­fied with a 250,000volt­age cur­rent. It re­mained un­clear whether the per­pe­tra­tors wanted to profit by sell­ing the ca­bling or if the sab­o­tage was in­tended to protest the planned stream­lin­ing of the loss­mak­ing OSE.
