Reuters captures striking image of Greece wildfire

On July 26, sorrow became tinged with anger in Greece as rescuers searched scorched land and the coastline for survivors, three days after a wildfire destroyed a small town outside Athens and killed at least 83 people – a toll expected to rise further. On July 23, Reuters captured this striking photo of people watching the wildfire raging in the town of Rafina, near Athens. The cause of the fire is still unclear and is being investigated by an Athens prosecutor who is also reviewing the way it was handled.
