Nearly 50 killed, more than 100 injured in Greece forest fires

At least 49 people were killed during a devastating forest fire which broke out east of Greek capital on Monday, fire brigade officials said on Tuesday.

According to fire department spokeswoman Stavroula Malliri, 156 adults and 16 children have been hospitalised with injuries.

Eleven of the adults are in serious condition.

Fires on either side of Athens left lines of cars torched, charred farms and forests, and sent hundreds of people racing to beaches to be evacuated by navy vessels, yachts and fishing boats.
