Mayor appeals to embassy over Greek aid worker

Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis has written to the Pakistani Embassy in Athens to protest the abduction of Professor Athanasios Lerounis, who had been working as a volunteer teacher for a humanitarian organization in northwestern Pakistan since 1995 and had founded two primary schools, three day centers and a cultural center there. Lerounis was kidnapped on Tuesday from his home in the Chitral Valley along with a servant. A guard was reportedly killed in the raid.
