Helios memorial services to be held on Cyprus

Relatives of the 121 people who died aboard a Helios Airways plane that crashed near Athens in 2005 were to hold a memorial for the victims in several Cypriot cities on Saturday evening.

The services, in Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paralimni, come four months after an Athens court jailed four employees of the defunct Cyprus budget carrier for manslaughter through negligence after the 121 people were found to have died after being starved of oxygen.
