"The first part of the agreement was that we would collect information on the things that the two Turks would tell us. My first task was to put military targets under surveillance, to record troop movements, infrastructure and business activity in order to ascertain whether, for example, any major industrial units were being built."
The mayor of Kos, Giorgos Kyritsis, on Wednesday, called on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and Infrastructure Minister Christos Spirtzis to start the process of granting compensation to homeowners and businesses that suffered losses when a strong quake, measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale, struck the Dodecanese island last month.
The name of the Turkish national killed in the earthquake on the island of Kos is Sinan Kurtoglu. According to Turkish media, the 39-year-old man was killed when the bar he was at in the old town of Kos collapsed. The other tourist that was killed was a 27-year-old Swede whose identity has not yet been confirmed. The Turkish man was identified by the Turkish Minister of Health.
