Arta high school hit in chemical attack
Police in Arta, northwestern Greece, were yesterday looking for the perpetrators behind an unprecedented attack on a local high school with an industrial cleaning agent that caused three teachers to be hospitalized with respiratory problems.
According to local media, unknown assailants poured a chemical, believed to be a strong, creolinbased cleaner, into parts of the school.
Emergency services were called when students and teachers began complaining of breathing problems, prompting the evacuation of the premises. Regional authorities have ordered the school closed as special crews remove the chemical.
How or when the agent was administered remained unclear.
