Three people were killed over the Easter weekend when they attempted to set off homemade fireworks, authorities said yesterday, despite an awareness campaign and the seizure of more than 1 million illegal fireworks by police. A 39-year-old man was killed on Easter Sunday on the eastern Aegean island of Icaria when a homemade firework blew up in his hands. He was named as Markos Glaros, a married man with two children. A 50-year-old father of three was killed on the same day in a village near Agrinion, central Greece. One of the unnamed man’s hands was blown off when a firework exploded and he died from his injuries soon afterward. Authorities said that a 59-year-old man died Good Friday in a village near Mesolongi, western Greece, when a firework that he had made exploded in his hands.
