    Athens will intensify checks on departing airline passengers to help ensure that no 9/11-styled hijackers force a plane to crash into a site for the summer Olympic Games.

    In the rival ND camp, senior deputy Yannis Varvitsiotis will head the conservative partys European candidacy list, rather than stand in the domestic elections.

    30/1/2004 8:38:00 μμ

He also strongly criticized the main opposition New Democracy party and its leader Costas Karamanlis, within the framework of his pre-election tour of northern Greece, saying that the agricultural program that ND announced was being implemented by the government for the past 10 years.
