Greek wildfire kills at least 49, fire brigade says

MATI (Reuters) - At least 49 persons were killed during a devastating forest fire which broke out east of Athens on Monday, a senior fire brigade official said.

A Reuters witness earlier said he had seen bodies in the area, and had heard reports of several more casualties - metres away from a beach where hundreds had fled to save themselves.
