Firefighters battled wildfires raging northeast of Athens for a third day on Tuesday as Greece asked for help from its European partners to prevent them from spreading.

The fire started in Kalamos, a coastal holiday spot some 45 km (30 miles) northeast of the capital, and has spread to three more towns, damaging dozens of homes and burning thousands of hectares of pine forest. A state of emergency has been declared in the area.

“The blaze is advancing with great speed. Because of the scale and intensity of the wildfires, the country submitted a request for aerial means,” fire brigade spokeswoman Stavroula Maliri told a press briefing.

Cyprus offered a group of 60 firefighters, and a Greek air force plane was headed there to pick them up. But a request for two pairs of CL-415 firefighting aircraft was turned down by France as it had to deal with its own wildfires, she said.

Three firefighting planes and six water-throwing helicopters operated through the day, assisting 210 firefighters and about 100 military personnel battling the blaze on the ground near the town of Kapandriti.

Rugged terrain dotted with small communities made the fire-fighting difficult, with winds rekindling the blaze at many spots. Thick, billowing smoke rendered operations from the air difficult.

Across Greece, firefighters were battling more than 55 forest fires, an outbreak fed by dry winds and hot weather that fanned blazes in the Peloponnese and on the Ionian islands of Zakynthos and Kefalonia.

Comics, including Samantha Bee and Seth Meyers, discuss Donald Trump’s close relationship with the network and his daughter Ivanka’s role in the White House


This article titled “Late-night hosts on Fox News: ‘The closest we have to state TV'” was written by Guardian staff, for theguardian.com on Thursday 6th April 2017 15.58 UTC

Late-night hosts took aim at Trump’s close relationship with Bill O’Reilly and discussed his daughter Ivanka’s role in the White House.

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert talked about how the president had “stuck his finger into O’Reilly’s sticky situation”, referring to the Fox News pundit’s sexual harassment suits that the network settled to the tune of m.

   <figure class="element element-video">  </figure>   <p>When asked about O’Reilly, Trump claimed he wasn’t guilty. Colbert joked: “What happened to innocent until proven to have m?”<br /></p> <p>He continued: “The m might be the tip of the iceberg, although the tip is the most sensitive part of the iceberg.”</p> <p>He went on to address Trump: “You just declared April ‘Sexual Assault Awareness Month’, and there are two accusations of sexual assault that I’m aware of: Bill O’Reilly’s and yours.”</p> <p>Colbert also found time to discuss Ivanka Trump’s recent interview in which she addressed her influence on her father’s policies, stating that she hadn’t been elected by the American people. “To be fair, your father wasn’t elected by the American people either, just the electoral college,”...
