Veteran Greek crime reporter shot dead near home in Athens

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Police say a veteran Greek crime reporter has been gunned down near his home in southern Athens. Giorgos Karaivaz was found dead early Friday afternoon with several gunshot wounds beside his car in the Alimos suburb, police said. Private Star TV, for which he worked, said Karaivaz had just returned from work. It said two men on a motorcycle drew up beside him and the passenger fired at least ten shots. The Greek government, opposition parties and the country’s main journalists’ union strongly condemned the attack.
