Greece celebrates Ochi Day


Greeks on Friday celebrated Ochi Day, which commemorates 28 October 1940, when Greek leader Ioannis Metaxas rejected Mussolini's ultimatum to allow Italy to invade Greece, propelling his nation into World War II. “We Greeks may have serious differences, but we are ready to defend the country’s territorial integrity,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said during a visit at the eastern Aegean island of Agios Efstratios.
