Wildfires burn for third day in Greece, EU allies send aid


Wildfires burned for a third day west of the Greek capital Athens on Wednesday, as authorities braced for a new heatwave stoking tinderbox conditions across the country.

At first light, air water bombers resumed operations over the towns of Mandra, west of Athens, and Loutraki, close to the Corinth canal which separates mainland Greece from the Peloponnese.

Firefighters worked through the night to keep flames at bay and away from a complex of coastal refineries.
