Greece wildfires continue, farms and factories in peril

Greece battles devastating wildfires amid scorching temperatures, with mass evacuations in tourist spots like Rhodes and Corfu. The fires have been burning for ten days on Rhodes and new blazes have erupted on the mainland, destroying farms and factories.

Two people were killed in central Greece, bringing the death toll to five. The fires have led to evacuations in Magnesia, and firefighters are working tirelessly to contain the flames. The intense summer heatwave has affected large areas of the Mediterranean, with wildfires also reported in Portugal, Sicily, and Algeria.A young man runs next to a burning farm in Sesklo, in central Greece. — Reuters
