Acropolis Now

Oh dear, it seems that the Olympics Games chief Gianna Angelopoulos attempted her own version of Armageddon on Saturday.

She held a party Saturday night for foreign VIP's, with a spectacular firework display as a climax.

Unfortunately, the fireworks set fire to a nearby park; odd that, given the fact the Athens is bone dry at the moment!

The result is that the mayor is filing a suit against her, and an investigation has been launched into whether proper safety precautions were taken.

Maybe she should have stuck to water features, such as the opening ceremony, something she has more skill with.
