Cab­bie killer on the loose?

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Spec­u­la­tion­was rife in the Greek me­dia yes­ter­day that a killer is on the loose in Athens af­ter a cab driver was fa­tally shot in the head at mid­night on Tues­day in the north­ern sub­urb of Ki­fis­sia.

Po­lice said the driver, 52, was shot while the taxi was in mo­tion. The car kept mov­ing af­ter the shoot­ing and stopped af­ter crash­ing into a parked car. The man was dis­cov­ered by the driver of a pass­ing bus, which was forced to stop be­cause the cab was block­ing the road. Foren­sic ex­perts are ex­am­in­ing a bul­let shell found in the car. A sim­i­lar in­ci­dent took place in the same area last month, dur­ing which an­other tax driver was shot in the neck. He sur­vived, but po­lice are ex­am­in­ing a pos­si­ble link with Tues­day’s shoot­ing.

Greek Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras (r) wel­comes his Mal­tese coun­ter­part Joseph Mus­cat to the Max­i­mos Man­sion in Athens yes­ter­day. In com­ments af­ter their talks, Tsipras spoke out against the ‘math­e­mat­ics of aus­ter­ity’ and said the Euro­pean Union is char­ac­ter­ized by its ‘demo­cratic and so­cial ac­quis com­mu­nau­taire.’
