The coast guard on Friday, following a pursuit, arrested a 37-year old foreign national driving a speedboat that had earlier let off seven irregular migrants on a beach (five men and two women) on the island of Kos. The driver of the speedboat was spotted by two coast guard patrol vessels on Friday and repeatedly refused to comply with signals to stop the boat.

Athens hails agreement to give country access to markets in August after final bailout

Greece’s government has said the country is “turning a page” after eurozone member states reached an agreement on the final elements of a plan to make its massive debt pile more manageable, ending an eight-year bailout programme.

“I have to say the Greek government is happy with this deal,” the finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos, said on Friday. “But at the same time, this government will not forget what the Greek people went through in the past eight years.”

The government spokesman, Dimitris Tzanakopoulos, hailed “a historic decision” that meant “the Greek people can smile again”. Financial markets rallied, with the country’s benchmark 10-year bond easing 0.2 points and the main stock index up 1.6%.

Tsakalotos said the plan, which allows Greece to extend and defer repayments on part of its debt for another 10 years and gives Athens another €15bn (£13.2bn) in new credit, marked “the end of the Greek crisis. I think Greece is turning a page.”

He said the country had “all the building blocks … to turn the agenda away from one of fiscal adjustment … to one of growth”, but added that the government “has to make sure the Greek people quickly see concrete results … They need to feel the change in their own pockets.”

But the main opposition party New Democracy reacted to the deal with scepticism, saying it left much to be desired. Asked whether he thought the €22bn (£19bn) buffer Greece had been given would suffice, the party’s Kostis Hatzidakis said it reflected the lack of faith international creditors had in Athens’ ability to…

Hymns sung to the Greek gods thousands of years ago resonated from ancient musical instruments in Athens on Thursday, transporting a transfixed audience to antiquity.

The phorminx, the kitharis, the krotala and the aulos — string and wind instruments reconstructed by musical group Lyravlos — echoed among marble statues in Athens’s National Archaeological Museum as part of World Music Day celebrations.

A family of musicians, Lyravlos have recreated exact replicas of the ancient instruments from natural materials including animal shells, bones, hides and horns.

Music was an integral part of almost every aspect of ancient Greek society, from religious, to social to athletic events.

Today only some 60 written scores of ancient Greek music have survived, said Lyravlos member Michael Stefos.

Stefos said they interpret them as best they can, relying on the accuracy of their recreated instruments.

“Joking aside, ancient CDs have never been found,” he said. Their performance included a hymn to the god Apollo, pieces played at the musical festival of the ancient Pythian Games in Delphi and during wine-laden rituals to the god Dionysus.

Michael’s father Panayiotis Stefos, who heads the group, travels to museums at home and abroad studying ancient Greek antiquities and texts in order to recreate the instruments.

“Usually each instrument has a different sound. It is not something you can make on a computer, it will not be a carbon copy,” said Stefos.

The difference with modern…

Hymns sung to the Greek gods thousands of years ago resonated from ancient musical instruments in Athens on Thursday, transporting a transfixed audience to antiquity.

The phorminx, the kitharis, the krotala and the aulos — string and wind instruments reconstructed by musical group Lyravlos — echoed among marble statues in Athens’s National Archaeological Museum as part of World Music Day celebrations.

A family of musicians, Lyravlos have recreated exact replicas of the ancient instruments from natural materials including animal shells, bones, hides and horns.

“Usually each instrument has a different sound. It is not something you can make on a computer, it will not be a carbon copy,” said Stefos.

The difference with modern day instruments? “If someone holds it in their arms and starts playing, after a few minutes they don’t want to let it go, because it vibrates and pulsates with your body,” he said.

French tourist Helene Piaget, who watched the performance, said it was “inspiring.”
