The country’s pharmacists on Tuesday intensified their protests against the government’s plans to liberalize the market for nonprescription drugs, allowing supermarkets to stock the medicines, threatening action “the likes of which has never been seen.”

Greece’s public order minister says he will announce a reward of about 4 million euros ($5.4 million) for information leading to the capture of fugitive terrorists.

Nikos Dendias said Wednesday the details would be announced later in the day. He did not specify how many fugitives the reward would concern.

A top Greek court has struck down wage cuts imposed by the government in 2012 on police and armed forces to comply with the terms of the country's EU/IMF bailout, court and government officials said on Wednesday.

The ruling by the Council of State, Greece's highest administrative court, could blow a hole of as much as 500 million euros ($677 million) in the country's finances, a senior finance ministry official warned.

Aragia side of Poros all but cut off. Narrow iron bridge closed due to drainage works, Vohinas flowing well across the ford after yesterday's rain. Passable by day but not great fun in the dark - and that's in a car. Wellies needed if walking.

Kef municipality is inviting tenders for e.g. sunbed and beach brollie plots. Think I've probably misunderstood that, usually seems to happen after the season has started.
