Cretan boy dies after electric scooter accident

An 11-year-old boy who had sustained serious injuries from an accident with an electric scooter earlier this week has died, local media reported on Friday.

The boy had been hit by a car on Monday as he tried to cross the old national highway in Hersonissos in Iraklio on an electric scooter. The impact left him in critical condition, with serious injuries to his head and lungs.

European Commission to challenge Apple tax bill verdict

The European Commission plans to appeal against a ruling that Apple does not have to pay 13bn euros (£11.6bn) in back taxes to Ireland.

The EU's General Court had ruled in July there was no evidence Apple had broken any rules on tax paid there.

Ireland never disputed the arrangement but the European Commission, which brought the case, argued it enabled Apple to avoid taxes on EU revenues.

The EU said paying the correct amount of tax was "a top priority".

In 2016, a court ruled that Apple had indeed been given illegal tax breaks by Dublin - but this was overturned in July 2020.

In separate incidents two French flagged sailing yachts, the LA SCALOPE and the UAJJAYI, beached on mudbanks near the de Bossett bridge in Argostoli earlier today. Both pulled off without any injuries or damage.
