Victims of 2010 arson attack remembered

People lay flowers Thursday at the site of an arson attack in central Athens that left three bank employees, including one pregnant woman, dead six years ago. The fire broke out after arsonists attacked the branch of Marfin Bank on Stadiou Avenue during an anti-austerity rally on May 5 in 2010. No one has been convicted of causing the fire. In 2013, three bank officials were given jail sentences of up to 10 years for failing to protect the lives of the staff during the attack. Their terms were suspended pending the outcome of an appeal.
