Six foreign nationals, including two children, were killed after extreme weather conditions struck Chalkidiki, northern Greece, late on Wednesday.
An 8-year boy and a 54-year woman from Romania were killed when the shelter of a restaurant they were dining fell as a result of gale-force winds, rain and hailstorms that struck in the area.
Earlier, two elderly Czech tourists were killed when strong winds and water swept away their travel trailer.
Two more deaths were recorded in Nea Potidea, where a tree fell on a 39-year-old Russian and his son, about two years old, living in a hotel unit in the area.
Citizen Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis expressed his sorrow for the victims of the disaster in Chalkidiki, northern Greece.
“I want to express my sorrow on behalf of all […] We mourn for the loss of these souls and we are in solidarity with their relatives, with the people who have lost their families,” the minister said, adding: “We will do everything possible as a country to stand for the loss of these souls.”
