Wildfires rage near Athens


Dozens of firefighters are trying to contain wildfires north east of the Greek capital Athens.

Flames have reached houses in the towns of Grammatiko and Varnavas, but no casualties have been reported.

The fires are the worst on the Greek mainland since those in 2007, when 70 people were killed.
