Rescue workers on Saturday discovered the body of a 64-year-old British woman who had been missing since Thursday in the area of Maroneia, in the northern prefecture of Rodopi, which appeared to have been savaged by animals.

According to reports, the woman had telephoned relatives in London on Thursday afternoon, saying that she had been bitten by a stray dog.

A coroner was to determine the exact cause of her death.
