Two men remanded over Athens medical student’s kidnapping

Two men suspected of kidnapping a 27-year-old medical student from near her home in the Athens neighborhood of Kypseli earlier this month were remanded in custody on Wednesday.

The two suspects, aged 48 and 53, are alleged to have held the woman at a home in Artemida, northeastern Attica, until they were paid an 82,500-euro ransom.

The 48-year-old is alleged to have organized the abduction.

Police are still searching for a third man, an Albanian national, who allegedly took part in the kidnapping.
