Po­lice said yes­ter­day they have solved the mur­der of an 83-year-old bishop in his home in Aghios Pan­telei­monas, cen­tral Athens, four years ago. Ac­cord­ing to the re­sult of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, Bishop Eleft­he­rios of Nyssa was mur­dered by two Afghan na­tion­als, both aged 21, and a 46-year-old Ira­nian. Po­lice con­firmed that one of the sus­pects had fled Greece to an­other Euro­pean Union mem­ber-state, while the other two were in the process of search­ing for pass­ports in a bid to leave the coun­try, but it was not clear if they had man­aged to do so. An in­ves­tiga­tive mag­is­trate has is­sued ar­rest war­rants for all three and has be­gun pro­ce­dures to is­sue Euro­pean ar­rest war­rants. Eleft­he­rios died from as­phyx­i­a­tion af­ter the cul­prits, whose mo­tive po­lice said was rob­bery, stuffed his mouth with a cloth.
