A to­tal 304,667 euros will be paid in com­pen­sa­tion to­mor­row to six mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in the At­tica re­gion that were hit by heavy rain­storms on Oc­to­ber 24, Deputy La­bor Min­is­ter Vas­silis Kegeroglou said. The cash will be dis­trib­uted to res­i­dents of Ilion, Aghioi Anar­gy­roi-Ka­matero, Fyli, Peris­teri, Pi­raeus and Acharnes in the form of an emer­gency 587-euro stipend. Mean­while, the min­istry said that five new re­quests for 75,116 euros of emer­gency sub­si­dies have been sub­mit­ted from the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Aghia Var­vara, Aspropy­r­gos, Ko­ry­dal­los, Nika­iaRendis and Haidari.

Freak ac­ci­dent.

A coro­ner on Satur­day con­firmed that the death of a 21-year-old toy store em­ployee in the north­ern Athens sub­urb of Psy­chico on Fri­day was due to a freak ac­ci­dent. Res­cue work­ers found the young woman’s body after re­ceiv­ing a call to help free a pas­sen­ger stuck in the store el­e­va­tor late on Fri­day. The 21-year-old ap­pears to have choked to death after a metal lad­der she was car­ry­ing got stuck in the slit be­tween the el­e­va­tor cab and the door.

An­i­mal rustling.

Po­lice in Kilkis, in north­ern Greece, have ar­rested two sus­pects for steal­ing live­stock from farms in the re­gion. Au­thor­i­ties said that the two Al­ba­nian na­tion­als, aged 21 and 24, are sus­pected of steal­ing more than 100 sheep val­ued at over 9,500 euros. Au­thor­i­ties have also ar­rested a 47-year-old farmer on charges of buy­ing and sell­ing stolen prop­erty. The sus­pects were to face a pros­e­cu­tor.

Drug crack­down.

Seven peo­ple were ar­rested over the week­end in Thes­sa­loniki, north­ern Greece, on charges of il­le­gal drug pos­ses­sion. They were charged after they were found car­ry­ing un­spec­i­fied amounts of il­le­gal psy­chotropic drugs. Mean­while, Thes­sa­loniki au­thor­i­ties ar­rested three peo­ple in con­nec­tion with pend­ing con­vic­tions and ar­rest war­rants.

Artemi­sio Tun­nel.

Au­thor­i­ties will con­duct an emer­gency re­sponse drill at the Artemi­sio Tun­nel, on the sec­tion of the na­tional high­way be­tween Corinth and Tripoli in the Pelo­pon­nese, be­tween 9 p.m. on Tues­day and 6 a.m. on Wed­nes­day. Dur­ing those hours, both lanes be­tween the Sterna and Tripoli-Vor­eia in­ter­sec­tions will re­main closed. Mo­torists trav­el­ing to Tripoli or Corinth dur­ing this time will be di­verted to the old na­tional high­way run­ning through the Ach­ladokam­pos area.

Char­ity.

Smile of the Child plans to do­nate three mo­bile post­na­tal and in­fant units to the EKAV emer­gency med­i­cal as­sis­tance ser­vice, the char­ity group said Satur­day. The an­nounce­ment was made dur­ing a visit by Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras to the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s head­quar­ters in Melis­sia, north of Athens. The char­ity has do­nated another eight units to EKAV in the past few years.
