Cyprus Pres­i­dent Ni­cos Anas­tasi­ades will have heart surgery to re­pair a de­fec­tive valve, gov­ern­ment spokesman Ni­cos Christodoulides said yes­ter­day. Doc­tors spot­ted the prob­lem dur­ing a rou­tine med­i­cal check, Christodoulides said, adding that the op­er­a­tion would be car­ried out “very soon.” The 68-year-old pres­i­dent was hos­pi­tal­ized last month in Brussels, where he had been due to at­tend a Euro­pean Union sum­mit, after suf­fer­ing a nose­bleed trig­gered by high blood pres­sure.

Farmer mur­dered.

A 40-year-old live­stock breeder has been found mur­dered at her farm in the Pelo­pon­nese, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. The 40-year-old mother of four had re­port­edly been shot twice. The farm is lo­cated near the town of Leoni­dio in Ar­ca­dia. Po­lice said they were look­ing for a 67-year-old lo­cal res­i­dent.

Soc­cer death.

Two more peo­ple were re­manded in cus­tody on Crete yes­ter­day in con­nec­tion with the death of a soc­cer fan last month. Costas Kat­soulis died after fight­ing broke out at a match be­tween lo­cal team Irodotos and Eth­nikos Pi­raeus. Kat­soulis sup­ported the lat­ter. The two sus­pects, aged 26 and 34, deny caus­ing his death. Another three men, aged 24, 27 and 32, have been re­manded in cus­tody.

Fire res­cue.

Of­fi­cers of the po­lice’s mo­tor­cy­cling DIAS unit res­cued an el­derly woman from her home in Sykies, a sub­urb of Thes­sa­loniki, yes­ter­day morn­ing after she be­came trapped in a fire that broke out un­der cir­cum­stances that re­mained un­clear. Neigh­bors tele­phoned the po­lice and eight DIAS of­fi­cers were dis­patched to the scene be­fore the fire ser­vice ar­rived. The woman was said to be un­harmed.

Car blaze.

Po­lice on Crete were yes­ter­day seek­ing to de­ter­mine the ex­act cause of death of a man aged around 60 whose charred re­mains were found in his car near the coastal port of Kis­samos in the is­land’s north­west late on Tues­day. Po­lice and a lo­cal coro­ner both ruled out foul play in con­nec­tion with the death of the man whose body was found hang­ing out of the driver’s door of the ve­hi­cle.

Face­book de­cep­tion.

A 28-year-old man has been ar­rested for al­legedly trick­ing dozens of women into giv­ing him ac­cess to their com­put­ers, from which he stole per­sonal data, in­clud­ing in­ti­mate pho­tos and videos. The man is al­leged to have conned 116 women be­tween May 2013 and Oc­to­ber 2014. The sus­pect set up Face­book ac­counts with which he pre­tended to be a post­grad­u­ate stu­dent at the Univer­sity of Pa­tras that was work­ing on new anti-virus soft­ware. He con­vinced his vic­tims to down­load a pro­gram that al­lowed him to have re­mote ac­cess to their com­put­ers.
