Greece in mourning, several still missing in deadly flood

Greece was in mourning Thursday as rescue crews tried to locate several people missing in a flood that killed 15 people near the capital, as rain continued to fall.

Authorities said at least five people were still missing in Mandra, one of three towns some 50 kilometres (30 miles) west of Athens hit by a freak flood early on Wednesday.

"It was like a tsunami," Evangelos Kolovetzos, a local shopowner, told AFP.
