Two Greeks in Mumbai safe

Two Greeks who were caught up in the terrorist attack on the Oberoi Trident Hotel in Mumbai, India, have been released unharmed, it was revealed on Friday, as Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis condemned the strikes, which have killed more than 130 people. The Foreign Ministry, which did not name the two Greeks, said efforts were being made to get them home as quickly as possible. The previous day, a British-Cypriot businessman was named by the British government as among the dead. Andreas Liveras, 73, was killed hours after he gave an interview describing how he was trapped in the Taj Mahal hotel. «I would like to condemn in the strongest possible terms the cold-blooded, criminal terrorist attacks in India,» said Karamanlis in Parliament. He revealed that Greece had offered, through the European Union’s crisis center, to send a military transport airplane to India in order to bring some of the wounded to Athens for treatment.
