It’s made the front page of several European newspapers, including the Greek paper H Naftemporiki.
It shows the picture of a man, running away from the blazes.
The Italian newspaper, Corriere Della Sera also shows us a gripping photo of the blazes. “A fire wall encircles Athens”, reads the title.
Italian planes have already joined Greek firemen, to try and put out the flames. Thousands of people have already fled.
The Independent however, interviewed several residents who refused to leave their home.
Vassilis for example, has been living in a suburb of Athens, for more than ten years. He says he will not leave. He’s spent years building this house, working on small jobs, and raising his two daughters.
Like many residents, he’s been using garden hoses, buckets of water, and even branches to fight the flames.
“I don’t trust the authorities to do their jobs right”, he says.
Many Greeks feel the same way at the moment. They remember the deadly fires that killed 65 people, in 2007. Many Greeks blame the Government for not acting sufficiently.
It’s been three day already, more than 200 fires have broken out and 30,000 of acres of land have been destroyed.
Experts say the wind is not likely to ease before this evening.
The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet originally printed the controversial article.
There it is there, it was written by Donald Bostrom, on Sunday. The article first appeared in the culture page, because the author is a writer, not a journalist.
He talks about questions that Israel needs to answer, yet he doesn’t directly accuse Israel of stealing organs from the bodies of Palestinians.
Instead, he interviewed a Palestinian family, who suspects Israel to have stolen the organs of their son.
Today, the Swedish newspaper printed a new article, denying Israel’s accusations of Anti-Semitism. It has sent back a team of journalists on the story, who interviewed the Palestinian family again.
The mother explains that when her son died in 1992, Israeli authorities weren’t keen on showing them the body.
They told her he had undergone an autopsy in Tel Aviv.
Barack Obama has started his week-long holiday, on the quiet island of Martha’s Vinyard…
It’s his first family holiday since he took office in January, and according to the French newspaper Le Figaro, his holidays are too “Chic”.
The Obamas are staying at the Blue Heron, a villa with eleven hectares or land, a golf course, a basketball court and a swimming pool.
In the current economic crisis, many Americans have started to criticise Obama, for such a luxurious holiday.
According to the article, the Obama family is paying around $25,000 for their stay.
Andrew Strauss, Captain of the English team is seen beaming on the front page of most British newspapers, including The Independent, the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian.
He’s holding the tiny urn, full of ashes. “England regain ashes”, reads the title. The England team won against Australia, yesterday.
Millions of people savoured the victory. Pubs were full, champagne was flowing, supporters were singing.
Cricket is a British game, but Australia had for two decades been the top team.
