GIRL KILLED

Six-year-old Albanian savaged by two wolfhounds on Kithnos A six-year-old Albanian girl was killed on Saturday after being mauled by two dogs on the Aegean island of Kythnos, The Associated Press reported. The girl, who has not been named, was walking behind her father in the island’s main town when she was attacked, witnesses said. Police captured the dogs, which were wearing collars, and are searching for their owner. School collapses A school building in a northern Greek village, due to be transformed into a polling station for yesterday’s elections, collapsed during a thunderstorm on Saturday night. A watchman at the polling station in Tsakona, near Kastoria, managed to grab the ballot box and fled the crumbling building before the roof and walls caved in. Cretan quake A strong undersea quake, measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale, shook the southeastern coast of Crete early Saturday morning, but no injuries or damage were reported. The quake was strongly felt in Iraklion, Ierapetra and Siteia. Pilots flying An Athens court ruled on Saturday that a four-hour strike Greek pilots had threatened to stage tomorrow would be illegal and excessive. Pilots are protesting about the suspension of the Olympic Airways route to Australia. Flights should run as scheduled. Serial groom Police in Cyprus are investigating whether a man they arrested on Saturday on suspicion of being married to at least three foreign women at the same time has any other wives on the island. The 27-year-old, who has not been named, has been charged with polygamy, although he said he had only intended to help the women obtain residency permits. Police said he married a Romanian in 1997, and two Ukrainian women in the last six months.
