Another 26 casualties found from Greek wildfire, raising death toll to 50

Greece's Red Cross organization said on Tuesday the bodies of around 26 victims of a devastating forest fire east of Athens had been discovered, substantially raising a death toll from an inferno which ravaged the area on Monday evening.

"Unfortunately we found 26 charred bodies, between two homes," Nikos Economopoulos, president of the Greek Red Cross, told Greek state TV.
