A 30-year-old man of Georgian nationality was detained on the border with Bulgaria trying to leave Greece with a forged passport.

Police will bring the man back to Athens, where he will be interrogated over his possible involvement in the murder, earlier this week, of a 20-year-old British woman during a robbery at the Athens suburb of Glyka Nera.

The detained person has a criminal record, including a violent robbery of an elderly couple in the Athens suburb of Pikermi.
