Man who doused three in petrol turns himself in

TAGS: Crime

A 62-year-old man threatened to torch a notary’s office in central Thessaloniki, northern Greece, on Thursday and doused three people in petrol before police negotiators convinced him to give himself up.

The man’s motives were not clear but he was involved in a similar incident in 2011 when he attempted, on live TV, to set himself alight outside a bank in the same city.
