Drivers stranded in flash floods as severe storm hits Greece

Greek officials suggested arsonists may have been to blame for the infernos as it emerged 15 fires started simultaneously in the Athens area as part of moves to ‘destabilise the country’.

But others have dismissed the theory amid claims sparks from pylons caused the disaster. Authorities have also been accused of a slow response to the gale-driven fires (main and top right), which laid waste to an entire village in a matter of minutes. Dozens are still missing – including nine-year-old twin girls and an Irish newlywed – as emergency crews started the grim job of sifting through the charred remains of hundreds of homes and cars in fire-hit areas. Desperate family members have taken to social media to post pictures of their loved-ones (bottom) – but ambulance officials have said there is little hope of finding anyone alive in burnt out buildings.
