Attiki Odos SA Apologizes to Motorists About Monday’s Snowstorm Car Deadlock

ATHENS – The managers of Attiki Odos, where a deadlock during Monday’s extreme snowfall in both directions of the highway had not been resolved by evening, expressed its regret and apologized to drivers and their families for the inconvenience, the company said in an announcement.

“The company will take a more detailed stance on the decisions and conditions that led to these unprecedented events after the completion of the cars’ rescue operation,” it added.

The Greek army was deployed at six locations in Attiki Odos on Monday evening along with other security forces to help cars stuck on the highway after stalled cars and truck accidents created massive traffic jams.


ATHENS – While fending off allegations of pushing back refugees and migrants, Greece's Coast Guard said it caught two speedboats carrying 37 of them off the island of Kos, near Turkey's coast, and arrested three alleged human traffickers.
