Burning Rage

On December 6, 2008 a policeman on patrol murdered 16 year old Alexandros Grigoropolus near the alternative district of Exarcheia in the capital of Greece. The events sparked an outrage and Greek-wide riots, as the teenager became a symbol for the authoritarian Greek state. Police officer Epaminondas Korkoneas was charged with and convicted of murder. Ten years later thousands of people hold demonstrations commemorating the killed young man. At night police clashes with activists around Exarcheia.

Wildfire in Northern Germany

A heat-wave in early July in Germany led to fields and forest drying out. In Lübtheen a wildfire was sparked - likey by an arsonist - leaving thousands of Hektars burning on a former military training area that is full of left-over ammunition. Villages were evacuated. Fire-workers were not able to approach the area burning due to the danger of exploding old ammunition spread all over the place. Police and military helped fighting the wildfire. Helicopters and water cannons were used in the attempt to shut off the fire. Journalists were held back from the area. In the end the fire was isolated and left burning. It was declared the biggest wildfire in the history of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
